Waterfront access, miles of biking trails, equipment rental and prime nature viewing all within a few minutes of downtown Minneapolis. This park comprises the shorelines of Brownie Lake, Cedar Lake, Lake of the Isles, Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet in south Minneapolis. Outdoor fun takes on many forms here: hop on a bike and ride the paved trails around the lakes, enjoy a classical music concert at the Lake Harriet Bandshell, or paddle your way from Lake Calhoun into Lake of the Isles and back. Whatever your pleasure, this park is sure to have it.
