“Room to spread out”
Review of Lake Nokomis

Lake Nokomis
Ranked #38 of 232 things to do in Minneapolis
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Unlike Lake Harriet and Calhoun, Nokomis has some grass to spread out your towel or throw something around without stepping on someone. It is unfortunate that Cedar Ave was built over part of the lake and that you can wave at people in the jets landing at the airport. But if you tune that out, there is plenty of space to walk, run or ride or just lay around. The facilities are in good shape and the little nature areas are a nice touch.

I like it's size, it's middle class (as opposed to upper crust) feel. I love going to house sales near by and I love walking along it.

Nokomis doesn't seem as busy and packed as Harriet and Calhoun so its a nice place to get out and run if you don't want to be amongst the crowds.

I think unless you live in the area you may not be aware what a great feature of the Minneapolis Park System Lake Nokomis is. I discovered it many years ago on a Saturday night and skinny dipped there.
