The best thing about Minnehaha park are the falls. So, you might be a bit disappointed if you go during a dry spell, as the falls can become nothing more than a trickle if it hasn't rained alot. I have been there in the winter, when the falls look like big icicles and in the summer when the falls are raging. Wear your walking shoes, as it is a hike down many stairs to get to the bottom of the falls, where the views are best. Do continue walking down along the river to the MIssissippi river as it is a great, well used trail. There is a bridge near the river, so you can walk down one side of the river and then up the other side. The park also has picnic tables, benches and concessions. You have to pay a few bucks to park, but totally worth it when the falls are rushing! It's a must see spot if you are a visitor to the Twin Cities.

Falls itself is not something extraordinary, but the water and the park is so nice. Especially the houses around the park are lovely.

Minneapolis has many green areas and the waterfall is a pretty sight. Good cycle paths and walking tracks. Also there is a good link generally with all city cycle paths.

One of the nicest parks I've been to anywhere. The falls are awesome and you can walk in behind them and get some amazing pics looking through the falls.

Minnehaha Park is Very Beautiful. A must visit for all. Lots of Parking, Walking paths, play area.
Only problem is the number of stairs it is required to get down to the Minnehaha creek.
