One of my favorite parks in the Twin Cities, for its soothing waterfall, and gently winding paths through the woods. It feels like a truly civic space—there always seem to be groups and families celebrating there. A great place to feel simultaneously connected to the community, as well as the natural world. A great place to picnic, either at the grills set up for public use, or for a more intimate picnic somewhere deeper into the park. In recent years, they have greatly improved parking and access to the area, making the experience
that much more enjoyable!
