I always have a great time here. There are a few different beach spots to chose from. You can bike, jog, walk or cruise around the lake any hour of the day

I was alone and decided to take a brisk walk around the lake. Is is beautiful and pleasant and it's possible to park a car for free nearby. There are options to rent bike and nautic sports gear.

Lake Calhoun brings a lot to travellers within the summer AND the winter time. All the lakes within Minneapolis freeze over and you can ice skate, then summer is perfect for paddle boarding, kayaking and having a picnic to just enjoy the weather. I would...More

I didn't pay anything. As everyone has mentioned, free to walk, picnic in the lawn etc. I didn't pay for my street parking.

I believe there are kayaks at Lake Calhoun. You can check the Minneapolis Park aboard site for the fee structure but I recall seeing them there.
