  • I know that this 53-foot waterfall, limestone bluffs and river overlooks is marvelous on summer time when thousands and thousands of tourists admire it, but then I figure out that winter's magic may do wonders to this waterfall and I wanted to see it
  • It is definitely worth it because even in wintertime when the temperature is extremely cold, one of Minneapolis' oldest and most popular park is still just as attractive
  • Yet there is nothing to be disappointed about, in my own opinion, the Minnehaha fall does not loose an ounce of its charm
  • I know I am right I would love to see this waterfall on summer time when it is freely flowing but there's no tiny bit of regret in me for wanting to capture its beauty frozen, unmoving and solid The Minnehaha Falls is simply enchanting on winter time
  • Or even on autumn, where the changing colors of leaves may add to the magnificence of this place All in all, the Minnehaha park, aside from the beautiful Minnehaha waterfall, is complete with all facilities that will make its visitors enjoy and experience convenience

      When we went to Minneapolis last December 2008, I wanted so bad to see the Minnehaha falls. I know that this 53-foot waterfall, limestone bluffs and river overlooks is marvelous on summer time when thousands and thousands of tourists admire it, but then I figure out that winter’s magic may do wonders to this waterfall and I wanted to see it. So in our four day stay in Minnesota, I squeezed in a little time to visit the Minnehaha Park. It is definitely worth it because even in wintertime when the temperature is extremely cold, one of Minneapolis’ oldest and most popular park is still just as attractive. There may never be so much visitors that time but despite the really cold weather and slippery, icy grounds, there

      were other tourists ( and even a few locals walking their dogs ) visiting the park.

      The Minnehaha falls is located in a 193-acre park that is located at the intersection of Hiawatha Ave. and Minnehaha Parkway. We walk really carefully to see the waterfall. It is so magical. There are no running waters of course, everything is frozen. Yet there is nothing to be disappointed about, in my own opinion, the Minnehaha fall does not loose an ounce of its charm. We can not go down the path to get close to it but even from a far, it stands there just like huge ivory stalactites or humungous icicles. I know I am right I would love to see this waterfall on summer time when it is freely ...


      • flowing but there’s no tiny bit of regret in me for wanting to capture its beauty frozen, unmoving and solid The Minnehaha Falls is simply enchanting on winter time.

        As a bonus, we were also able to see several sculptures, which I believe were significant to the American Indian heritage.

        If I will be given the chance, I would definitely come back on summer time when I can enjoy the whole park including the beautiful trees of oak, elm, silver maple, basswood, hackberry and cottonwood. I also would like to see the native and prairie woodland wild flowers and enjoy the Minnehaha parks’ activities including concerts, picnics and a closer view of the flowing waterfall. Or even on autumn, where the changing colors of leaves may add to the magnificence

        of this place

        All in all, the Minnehaha park, aside from the beautiful Minnehaha waterfall, is complete with all facilities that will make its visitors enjoy and experience convenience. Among those facilities are biking paths, drinking fountains, eatery/concessions, a nice garden,parkway & paid parking lots, picnic areas, restroom facilities, historic sculptures, playground, a volleyball court, a wading pool and a walking path. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? So if you’ll be visiting Minneapolis, don’t pass your chance to visit this park and see the water fall of course. I mean, it may not be as majestic as the Niagara falls, not tiny bit as big either.But still, the Minnehaha falls has a must see charm of its own- may it be spring, summer, fall or winter.

        A highly recommended place to visit indeed!
