Tips from locals
One of Minneapolis's loveliest spots! Connected to miles of trails along Minnehaha Creek, plenty of picnic spots, pedal carriages, and more.
It’s a great place regardless of the season, be prepared for a cold day in the winter when the waterfall is frozen
A beautiful park with trails along Minnehaha Creek and the Mississippi River. The park features hiking, playgrounds, picnic areas, and Sea Salt, a seafood restaurant with both indoor and patio seating.
