Minnehaha Regional Park  (map)

Please join us and enjoy the Minnehaha Regional Park and the MNACS picnic. Those with families are encouraged to bring them and see the park. Let’s take a break and take some time to get to know each other in an informal setting. Hope to see you there.

General info on Minnehaha Park:

“Minnehaha Falls and the land surrounding it became one of the first state parks in the United States when it was purchased by the state of Minnesota in 1889. Only New York had created a state park at that time.”

In addition to the Minnehaha Falls there is: Disc Golf at Wabun Picnic Shelter, Gardens (Longfellow Gardens, Minnehaha Falls Pergola Garden, and the Song of Hiawatha Garden); Historical Sites (Longfellow House, Princess Depot, John H. Stevens House); biking and walking trails; and we are between the Minnehaha Creek and the Mississippi River. In the Park Pavilion (near the Falls) is the Sea Salt Eatery.
