Sad to say, we've lived in Minnesota our entire lives and this was our first visit. Loved every minute of it! Conveniently reached via the light rail system or the highway, this is a real gem close to downtown. We will be back!

This is a truly lovely urban park. The falls were a "wow" for my toddler and the playground had ample things for him to do. We really enjoyed our evening here.

We went biking through the park and around Lake Nokomis! Trails were very nice, maintained well, and the scenery was fabulous! When we got back to the park, we decided to walk some. There are plenty of bike racks, remember a lock for your bikes though. We left ours unlocked and nobody bothered them, but would have been more comfortable... More

This park is very different depending on when you visit. In the summer, it's a great place for a picnic, for a walk, or just to view the falls. In the fall it is less crowded and it's fun to explore all the history surrounding the area and to view the leaves. In the winter, it can be magical if... More

(do look them up on-line for hours and other vital info)

I love Minnehaha Park. First of all there are the Minnehaha Falls, that can be viewed from many angles. Standing on the bridge just above the falls, from either side their is access for a good view then my favorite walk down the stairs to look up at the falls, feel the mist, take a picture. There is a great... More

We had a great time here. I am handicapped so I was only able to be at the top of the waterfall but it was still so beautiful. Lots of walking paths. And lots of places to have a picnic with friends or family.

Very much enjoyed walking around Minnehaha Park with my fiance on a sunny July day. Walked along the water on the nice trails, and made it all the way to where it meets the Mississippi River. Loved eating at Sea Salt Eatery. WORTH the wait. Will do a separate review for that. PROS: -Gorgeous park and waterfalls -Great walking trails... More

This. Park is centrally located for city and suburban visitors, close to major highways and roads. It is large enough to accommodate diverse groups of families and visitors, and to allow play, cookouts, frisbee golf, historical sites, and a waterfall. Bicycle rentals and a wonderful restaurant , Sea Salt, are at he park. Occasional theatrical plays and other community scheduled... More
