Minnehaha Falls - Minnehaha Park4801 S Minnehaha Dr
Minneapolis, MN 55417
A striking, wilderness waterfall in an urban setting. Overlooking the Mississippi River, Minnehaha Park is one of Minneapolis’ oldest and most popular parks, attracting over 850,000 visitors annually.
Located at the intersection of Hiawatha Avenue and Minnehaha Parkway, the 193-acre park features a 53-foot waterfall, limestone bluffs and river overlooks. The park contains oak, elm, silver maple, basswood, hackberry and cottonwood trees, as well as native and prairie woodland wildflowers.
Looks like a lovely park to enjoy in summertime. In December…..the falls are totally frozen!!! Very unique!
