“An Idyllic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

One of my earliest and loveliest experiences in Minneapolis was sitting on the grass in the late afternoon of a summer's day, listening to music with a view in the background of Lake Harriet dotted with sailboats. The bandshell itself is like a little castle. It's a memorable spot.

“Free summer concerts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a neighborhood treasure with free concerts through summer. The schedule can be downloaded from the parks and rec website. Parking may seem tough but it's not inconvenient in the summer to walk a few blocks. Another option is to ride your bike to this place.

“Great place to stop on a bike ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

My bicycle group often stops here when we ride around the lakes. It is a beautiful location and has a great snack bar. Restrooms are very clean!

“Peaceful spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The band shell is a nice place to watch performers in the summer time. Parking can be tough but its worth the hassle for a peaceful night by the lake. Minneapolis does free shows throughout the summer.

“Interesting architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We stopped here on our Grandf Rounds drive and loved the band shell and seating arrangement. Would love to go back when there is a performance of some kind. The area, in general, is nice but certainly this band shell is a standout.
