You can view these falls from both sides of the river. And do that! You get a different perspective. These historic falls (and the locks around them) are well maintained and provide insight into the early history of the Mississippi.

I learned that the St. Anthony Falls are substantially the only waterfalls on the MIssissippi River. Interestingly, geological conditions caused them to move many miles upstream and almost disappear before the Army Corps of Engineers stabilized them 100 year ago, and they have been helping Minneapolis generate power since then. The Falls themselves are pretty, but they are not especially large or impressive.

Nice view of the falls and a fun easy walk around on the trail loop. Paved and easy to do for people not in the best of shape.

We were here May 20, 2021 and everything is still closed. Did walk over the stone arch bridge and got nice pictures. Learned bout how the falls were saved and the use of the falls to generate electricity.

These are the big falls on the Mississippi River near downtown. The river is a pretty and an important natural feature of the city.

We were hoping to get a guided tour of the lock but due to civid they were cancelled. However, there were a few park rangers around if you had any questions, which was almost as good. The lock is not in use any more but you can walk along it and also walk along the Stone Arch Bridge.

This is a National Park area and a great city park for relaxing and exercising. Photos are easy to take - their is a lot of good material. Walk the big loop and enjoy the Mississippi River.

Put on your walking shoes and take in the Nicollet Park area east of the falls first. Walk across the pedestrian bridge at the south end and enjoy the view

This is so lovely to see, but is a really informative location. Again, I had somewhat assumed I already knew the basics, but I was really really wrong. There was so much more to understand. It’s fun, informative, and exciting. Stop by and see!

These are man-made falls, built on the site of an former natural waterfall, used to power the flour mills which you can still see down either side of this stretch of the river. A stone arch bridge angles across the river, giving you a pretty good view back to the slipway, but if you have the time, better views can be enjoyed from the water power site on Hennepin Island. We found an online heritage trail which runs in a loop around the falls and took us past a few interesting sights from Minneapolis' industrial past. An interesting feature to find in a big city centre - just don't go expecting great natural beauty.
