You'll definitely want to take a walk across the Stone Arch Bridge to view St. Anthony Falls. The waterfall is amazing. The park has a picnic area as well as a refreshment stand. Very nice attraction, strongly recommend taking the time to see.

The park around the falls area is interesting and very accessible from downtown. It makes a nice walk from the center of town. The interpretive information is interesting. But, the view of the falls is the big draw, it is spectacular on a pleasant day.

We walked along the riverside passsing old grist mills. Some signage along the way helped put the buildings into historical perspective. Then approaching the falls was phenomenal.

Walked across the pedestrian/bicycle bridge near St. Anthony Falls. Beautiful scenery, great views of the Minneapolis skyline, flour mill ruins, Pillsbury power plant and east and west bank Minneapolis. Please consider taking a stroll/ride across the river if in the area.

Take a short stroll on the Old Stone Arch Bridge to enjoy views of the Falls, the Locks, historic mills, and the skyline. Definitely worth the time to walk on the old railroad bridge that is now for pedestrians only. No charge.

So much activity at this place. A wonderful bridge over the Mississippi River allows for a beautiful view to do your thing- even dog friendly.

We enjoyed a walk near St. Anthony Falls on a beautiful day. The only charge is for parking which is nearby. Great view and a nice way to spend a small part of the day.

Great place to walk with a view. The sounds of the river and falls are very relaxing. Enjoy the fresh air and the nice surroundings.

Beautiful historic scenery - bridges, waterfall, parks, industrial museums and a bit of lively night life at the other side of the river
