I've been to Minneapolis-St. Paul numerous times but just visited this place for the first time in October. What a beautiful park and waterfall! It was a cold day, but we enjoyed a walk through the park and a great view of the waterfall. The steps to the bottom of the falls were roped off but all kinds of people were crossing over them to get a better view. It's worth a stop if you've got the time.

Parking is not the best but if you're lucky enough to find a spot take your time to walk around the main area. Some of the best places to take photos on your visit. Eat at Sea Salt (Sea Food), rent a wide variety of bikes, check out the music. Stand on the bridge and watch the water cascading over Minnehaha Falls, take a walk down the stairs to the foot of the Falls, cross over the lower bridge and walk to the wading pool. If you have a dog take them downthe road to the off leash dog park. Stopping by in the summer? Stop across the street and grab a cone at DQ.

This park is a great place to go for picnicking, hiking and just all around fun! There are several events held at the park throughout the year that could be taken advantage of. The falls are gorgeous when their has been sufficient rain and are even beautiful in the winter when they are frozen over. There is something to enjoy about it at all seasons of the year!
