Have visited the Cities multiple times yet had no idea about Minnehaha Park. We searched it out after seeing a post of the frozen falls, and were glad we did. Had great walking trails both paved and unpaved. Nice bit of nature in the city!

I love this place and bring a lot of out of towners here for photo shoots and a nice secluded walk in the middle of the city. It's a very reasonable walk all the way down to the river and back.

Minnehaha Park is a beautiful park in Minneapolis on the shores of the Mississippi River with trails and picnic tables and is the home to Minnehaha Falls. The park was a welcome escape from the city. Minnehaha Falls is a majestic 53 foot waterfall that was located just a short distance from the parking area. There was a bridge above... More

To enjoy the sound of nature, just enjoy walking by the river and listen birds singing then enjoy the fall sound. There is high stairs there that will make you tired and watch your steps because of the mud around the fall.

This is the most beautiful park around Minneapolis, waterfalls, walking, biking and grabbing a bite at Sea Salt. There is something to see in every season, I was just there last weekend to take some shots of the frozen falls and amazed again how beautiful it is.

Whether you want to view the cool waterfall, hike down to the Mississippi, picnic in the park with friends and family, bike around the park, or splash in the wading pool with your kids, this is a great get away right here in the city.

Kids will love playing in the shallow pools. The waterfall is beautiful in all seasons (really impressive when it's frozen). There is a playground nearby that is also fun for the kids
