“Lovely park, right downtown.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

This is a lovely gem of a park just a short walk from the main downtown area. A beautiful small lake to walk around (and fish in, if you are so inclined), big trees, lots of benches in shade or sun as desired, meandering walkways, and a gorgeous perennial garden. There is some noise from the freeway, but the park itself is so pretty and peaceful that it's easy to tune it out. Beautiful spot.

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Beautiful park with walkways and flowers everywhere. We didn't come across any homeless people as mentioned in other reviews, just walkers, bikers and people enjoying the grounds. If you stop here, make sure you cross the bridge over the street to go to the Sculpture Gardens where the large spoon and cherry is. Highly recommend both parks!

“Relaxing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

Loring Park is nice get away park within walking distance of downtown. My visit did not include any of the homeless or street noise another reviewer mentioned. I did see families, bike riders and some folks sunning in the grass. There is a nice lake and plenty of benches. It is also directly across the highway from the Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.

“Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

Loring Park is an easy walk from downtown Minneapolis. The park is a nice place to sit and relax. The down side is the traffic noise and homeless people.

“Outdoor stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Lovely walks around the pond, tennis courts and gardens. A garden in the city. Very close to the Walker Art museum and sculpture garden, you can spend the whole day strolling in a lovely setting.
