Minnehaha Park, Minneapolis Reviews

  • This is a very well maintained garden even though there is a constant flow of visitors from everywhere through out the year. It's usually a busy place, but you can still have a relaxed evening since there are plenty of stuff to enjoy here. There is an awesome restaurant inside the park, but it always has a long queue to get in. Only other food option close by is a DQ. All in all this is a good park if you want to just walk around sight seeing, bike, jog, or try one of their rental rides to ride around the park.

  • It was my first time going to the falls. It was great, my kids played in the small area where the river flows. It's shallow, but the current is still strong, so you need to be close to your kids. Parking can be tough be prepared to walk on a busy day. There is a great seafood restaurant on site, but nothing other than seafood is served. I do wish they had a large map to look at.

  • If you're visiting Minneapolis (perhaps short on time) and want to experience a beautiful park and a little bit of nature within a large city, Minnehaha is perfect. The waterfall is a short walk from the parking lot and down a few steps. At the bottom, take in the waterfall, but also take the time to follow the paths down to the Mississippi River. The walk is easy and you can take your time while enjoying the views. This is a very popular spot so be prepared for some crowds.

  • This is one of my favorite spots to visit and I love taking people from out of town here. The trails are really easy to hike and they don't take very long, but there a lots of options for places to walk around. I haven't personally swam there, but I see people doing it a lot.

  • Great place to have a great time in the park. They have bicycle cars that can be rented. Lots of shade and open areas for sun. The waterfall is the main center of attraction as it rushes down with beauty and force. The walking path leads through the side of the waterfall and twists through great scenery.
