Nice free park with a very beautiful waterfall. Parking is limited and costs money but it’s not that big of a deal. Park also has many recreational opportunities from bike rentals to walking around and looking at sculptures. The waterfall was probably the high light...More

Lovely park with playground, cafes and other amenities. The waterfalls are pretty and you can see plenty of wildlife around even on a busy day. Great day out for families and easily accessed by light train from Minneapolis.

Nice Park and beautiful falls! Good opportunities to take pictures and spend time with the family. Public transportation via light rail was utilized and convenient!

We went there on a beautiful summers afternoon. Park is really well kept. The falls are beautiful. Rent a surrey (bit pricey and they are really heavy ) and take a tour around the park.

Made a special stop on our way to ND to see the falls. You definitely get up close to the falls. Very pretty place. Wish we had more time, but perfect for families.
