This was a lovely surprise right off the light rail stop. We stopped by on our way to Mall of America coming from downtown and it was a nice scenic surprise! I'd recommend stopping by!

Being from out of the area, I was interested in seeing the waterfall and the Mississippi river. The waterfall was beautiful and the walking paths winded all the way to the Mississippi river. They also have a quiet road that you can drive along Throughout...More

Well-kept, oft-trodden trails are accessible for all ages. The falls are close to parking and can be viewed without having to walk far. There are stairs that lead down to the bottom of the falls, and a sturdy and wide walking bridge to view them...More

After many a visit to the twin cities, finally made it to the falls. An amazing view with such easy access. The ice-cream shop nearby is not to be missed... 😂. It's not to missed a whole. Well worth it!

This park is beautiful! It's a great place to take a walk and forget that you are still actually in the city. There are great paths, waterfalls, stone bridges, historical buildings, and places to eat. It's definitely worth a stop, bring a camera.

Take your camera and make sure you take the trail down to the base of the falls. Also follow the trail as it winds along the river to where is connects with the Mississippi.

This park is spacious and near the falls. There is a bit of history and several monuments to view and benches to rest.

Every time that I come here, I'm amazed that this place is right in the middle of the city. It's a lot more than the (often seasonally stunning) waterfall. There are trails right to the Mississippi River and scattered throughout the woods, allowing a casual...More

A wonderful place to spend a weekend day - family-friendly, beautiful, and spacious. The waterfall is the icing on the cake. Highly recommend Sea Salt restaurant - but be prepared to stand in line. It’s worth it.

Visitors are not allowed to walk behind/directly under the falls, but you can descend a bunch of steps to get to a path to view the waterfall from below. The path continues along the water below the falls if you’d like a... More
