the dam is not too big, but has great parks in both sides, in Coon Rapids and Brooklyn Park, plus you see the Mississippi River at a stage when is not a really big river. You can use a bike and you can fish also.

The Dam is a great place to run or walk. There is lots of trails and I felt very safe there. I visited around 5pm during the week.

Nestled between two large suburbs, this tranquil park offers miles of trails and one of the best boat launches in the metro area

We have enjoyed this park for years! It's beautiful by the Mississippi River and Coon Rapids Dam. We visited in the fall to take pictures of the family. The colors were still pretty good in November. It's a great place to walk, bike and picnic.

What a nice place to bring the family to bike or picnic and enjoy the rushing water. Very well kept up park and seems to be safe but we never stay out late anywhere
