Caponi Art Park is a nice place to walk around and see art! It's like an outdoor art museum. I don't believe it's open in winter, but you can check.

some very good outdoor sculptures if you're in the area its worth the 45 minutes it will take to tour. best bet is to check and see if they have any theater or demonstration events going on.

Music and entertainment in the forest. The art work from the artist Anthony Caponi are very educational. It's an inspiration and enjoyable.

This park is located in a residential and hilly area of Eagan. This is a walking park that has outdoor art and a small building next to the parking lot. Best to visit here when the weather is warm and dry.

Flew into Minneapolis and was really put off by the feel of the city. Caponi park was my light in the storm. Just an amazing place. I could have stayed all day!
