Makes you feel like you are up north. A great escape from the busy city life and close to home. If you like nature and talking walks this is for you.

A truly wonderful place to go and walk, run, or stop to smell the flowers. Make an effort to see when you go to Minneapolis. I ask to go every time I'm up for a visit!

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?
