I love a stroll in Loring Park. It has lovely flowers during warmer months, it is by charming restaurants and of course the Walker. My only hesitation to give this 5 stars is the play areas and some of the trails are havens for homeless people and an unsavory element.

I mostly walked through Loring Park. It was so quiet and pretty, even in the very early spring. It's probably much bigger than it looked, but it's a nice size to walk through, and there are benches in case you want to just sit and watch the ducks and squirrels and birds.

I've been going to Loring Park since the 1980s when I loved going to Movies in the Park. The park itself has a beautiful pond and gardens and is surrounded by many good restaurants. Walk or bike up and over the road to the Walker Art Cent Sculpture Garden (once it re-opens). One could easily spend a great casual day... More

Having the privilege of living next to Loring Park, I would recommend the park. It is a great spot for Art in the Park and Pride Beer Festival. I was witness to an white squirrel and a lady feeding the squirrel. In the spring/summer many runners, families playing in the park. Simple beauty

A great place to unwind after a day of business conferences. Walk to it via the Loring Greenway (ped/bike only, no street crossings). Pond is a relaxing place to sit.

Loring Park is an inviting place to walk around or stroll into the center of downtown Minneapolis. It hosts many festivals throughout the year. Lots of great restaurants in the area to explore.

I always enjoy my time at Loring Park. Either on a long dog walk, or having a meal at one of many excellent restaurants located along the route. There are many nice buildings surrounding the park, which make for visual pleasure and good vibe. I most often take a walk in Central Park in NYC on the weekends, and Loring... More

Very nice park, i have seen the place both in fall and after 1 snow in my trips to Minneapolis and i am not at all disappointed with the time i spent there. This time after the 1 snow the whole park was covered in a thin white blanket and the dried maple is just an awesome contrast in the... More

Came over after the sculpture park. Was a nice park to walk around in, I can see why the Pride festival is usually over here, lots of room.
