Very beautiful walk over the bridge, from where you can can see the falls from above, then down to the bottom of the falls. Some of us soaked our feet in the river below the falls on the rocks. There are fields where people practice martial arts and yoga. Great people-watching and nature site.

This is a large park with many things to offer. Strolling the paved trails is very enjoyable. Be sure to stop by and check out the falls. Chances are food vendors will be nearby, and flea market-like tents will try to lure you in to purchase some of their wares. The park was very busy the day our friends took us here, but it did not stop us from having a pleasant stroll. Nice spot to spend some time.

Definitely make this a must go to if you are heading to Minneapolis in the spring or summer. It is beyond beautiful. If you are taking kids, be sure to plan on them being in the water. This is a lovely small area where kids can splash in the stream well below the falls. The park itself is lush and green and has something for everyone. A must do.

I love how you can walk a few minutes from the parking lot to a view of the waterfall. This is a great opportunity for individuals with mobility issues that want a nice park with scenic view. There are also bikes and bike trolleys tgat can be rented for $30 to $40 per hour.

On a nice summer day, you can expect to share the park with others -- dozens and dozens of others. In the spring, yep, expect crowds on the weekends. In the fall, it's the place to be. In the winter, crowds are way thin.

This is a nice place to visit the falls and Sea Salt -- a seafood restaurant in the park -- and go for a walk in the park, which runs along rivers, has numerous bridge crossings, and more.

Why this place is swell:

- It's right in the city and it's BEAUTIFUL
- It can be really peaceful (depending on time of day and year)
- Many food options
- Hiking isn't cumbersome
- Family-friendly

Why this place can be a bit much:

- Really, it's just the crowds. This place gets packed sometimes.

But, it's worth the visit definitely. Just go check it out.
