MINNEAPOLIS, MN - As a part of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, Minnehaha Regional Park is a park within a park. It is also part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, one of its most extended continuous urban parkway networks. There are five things you can do in Minnehaha Park:

  • Visiting Minnehaha Falls

Enjoy the waterfall's crashing water and mist from atop the falls, or descend a staircase to admire the cascade's height from below. If you want a lengthier stroll, follow the 2.1-mile out-and-back trek into the Mississippi River Valley.

  • Visiting three blooming gardens

Plants people are going to have a pick of beautiful flowers, native perennials, and well-designed beds at the Minnehaha Falls Pérgola Garden (a famous place for family photos), the songs of Hiawatha Garden and the Long Fellow Gardens, once a zoo, featuring a replica of the Henry Longfellow House in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

  • Go off-leash at Dog Park in Minnehaha

This tree-filled route down the banks of the Mississippi offers one of the most incredible leash parks in the region and offers magnificent sights and exercises for dogs and their owners equally. Water-loving canines can splash with new acquaintances even in the river.

  • Rent a Wheel Fun Rentals ride

Enjoy the bike paths of the park, which include surreies, low-rider chopper trikes, and quad-carts for rent per hour. It is a terrific technique to tick all these things in record time to make up your bucket list.

  • Paddling at Minnehaha Creek

This urban stream travels through 22 miles of marshes, woodlands, and posh suburban backyards to get to Minnehaha Falls. Thanks to intensive rehabilitation and protection of this regional asset, kayakers and canoeists can enjoy the entire creek.

You can plan your weekend activities to visit Minnehaha Parks and try the five activities above. For additional information about Minnehaha Park, you can visit minneapolis.org.
