Rating for your family


After experiencing the hustle and bustle of the city, come back to nature with a visit to Minnehaha Park. As the oldest and most visited park in Minneapolis, Minnehaha has gained quite the reputation. Certainly its famed 53-foot waterfall is impressive, and it is the happy home of elm, silver maple, basswood, hackberry and cottonwood trees. Outdoorsy families are sure to enjoy walking through the scenic landscape of Minnehaha Park, photographing limestone bluffs and the views from scenic overlooks as they explore.

Tips for Families

Summer is an especially popular time to visit the parks. Concerts are often offered during this season, and the weather is perfect for picnics.

Tips for Families

1. Bring quarters for parking meters. 2. If you can, visit on a weekday when the park is a little quieter. 3. Don't forget the camera, as the waterfall makes for a great backdrop for pictures. 4. If you are staying near the Mall of America and don’t have a rental car take the light rail from MOA.

Suggestions for nearby family-friendly accommodations

There are many hotels only minutes away near Mall of America (MOA). The new Radisson Blu at MOA is gorgeous.
