Minnehaha Falls Park is to Minneapolitans what Central Park is to New Yorkers. It’s our place to gather. We take out-of-town visitors here to show off our city’s attractions but it’s also a place for locals to enjoy the splendor of Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. We relax, hike, take in some history and cultural attractions, listen to a concert, attend a festival, and even enjoy great food.
• MINNEHAHA FALLS This 53-foot waterfall inspired Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to write his Song of Hiawatha, but he never actually saw it.
