Small playground with a variety of equipment, bathrooms available, lots of trails, interesting historical markers, and of course, the falls! Wabun picnic area, just to the east, has more playground equipment, shelters, a splash pad, and a large bathroom facility as well.

W are relatively new to the Minneapolis area and just had to see Minnehaha Park. Easy handicap parking (although we were there during the week and I suspect the weekend would be busier). The Falls are pretty impressive but I think what really impressed us...More

Most parking is metered. There are some free street park but it us hard to find. I believe there are some season parking lots for an annual fee.
Is there a place to rent a canoe or kayak for a short ride-- not for a day long excursion, just a quick ride?
