This is one of my favourite places in Minneapolis. No matter what season, after a drive through the bustling city, the beauty of the quiet walk from Minnihaha Falls through the trees, down the hill beside the river is an intellectually calming experience. Your problems are solved, your mind is at rest.

Many things to see and do. The Waterfall is gorgeous as is the nice long walking trail along the stream it flows into. There are now Surrey bile rentals to enjoy for a small fee. The restaurant there is pricey and offers sea food options only as an FYI. It is a great place to picnic, walk, hike, bike, take... More

It is easy to describe the majesty of the waterfall but the free summer outdoor concerts are the reason I come. They also have a quaint bistro/restaurant that brings tremendous choices and great desserts.

Had a hard time figuring out exactly where to park and didn't realize the falls were literally at the restaurant. We found a trail that followed the river with bridges to cross if you wanted to head back at any point and go back along the other side of the water.

Wow!! So beautiful..... Loved walking with my hubby down the trail along the water with great views of the falls. Never knew this existed. So relaxing, right in the middle of a bustling metropolitan area.

This is my favorite Minneapolis Park and I believe it's the oldest city park. The falls are of course a highlight, but the walking paths that line both sides of the river are scenic and it's easy to choose the length of your walk. We like to follow the longer one out to the Mississippi River. One has to manage... More

As usual locals take this spot for granted. We pass by this area often, but as the majority of us know we do not take the time to stroll thru one of the loveliest parks in USA. We are well traveled in other countries but forget how much great green space our city has to enjoy. We enjoyed a great... More

A very short walk to Minnehaha fall from the parking lot. There are a few lookouts at different angles to enjoy the fall. The trail along the Minnehaha creek is about 1 mile long one way, it ends where the creek meets Mississippi river. It is a nice park to spend some time to enjoy nature.

This site is WAY worth going to visit. It has ample parking and lots of grass and trees for the kids to run around in. There are bridges over the creek for viewing and steps down so you can see the falls. After the falls there are places to feel of the water and rocks to hunt for secrets in.... More
