It defines Minneapolis.

I've been going here all my life, picturesque and surprisingly open, a very good place for families with children. The Sea Salt restaurant has good food, but the lines can be long.

The waterfall is in the middle of the city so doing a 3 mile hike was unexpected. And this was not a paved road all the way; half was a trail and at times we were right next to the river. It was a very nice hike and we ended at Ft Snelling where we rented a bike and continued... More

Our grandkids love eating at Sea Salt and then walking over to see the falls. The falls are especially dramatic a few days after some measureable rain. Bike trails that lead from the park have some beautiful scenery and vistas.

Minnehaha Falls is one of the beauties and it's right in the city! Be sure to go up river just a tad to see Hiawatha carrying Minnehaha - romantic and special. Read the poem too cause it's great too.

This is a must while in Minneapolis. While visiting our daughter at UST, we as a family walked the park and took beautiful pictures of the falls. Very very beautiful!

The falls are just magical. No matter where you are within the park you can hear either the falls bursting down or the babbling brook. It's a beautiful place to be

We stopped by to walk around the park and see the falls --- which were frozen at the time. It is a really lovely area and lots of walkers, joggers and bikers spend time here.

Beautiful area. Lots of photo opportunities. Nice walking trails. Metered parking. Also an old train Depot. Great for all ages to enjoys. Some steps involved going down to the falls in the lower area. Lower area not handicap friendly.

Minnehaha Park is expansive and has a lot to offer for nature goers. An eating area is near the bike buggy rentals and one of the waterfalls. There are stairs in several locations ranging from a few to 50+. There are areas you can wade in the creek to cool off on a hot day.
