Not much there, just some old ruins of some old grain mills. It is on the Mississippi River bike trail, though, definitely worth a ride.

Tourist attractions are often created by preserving even some factories. This is one such instance. The walk along the Mississippi in the shadow of the ruins is lovely though. But take care of the cyclists who consider pedestrians as obstructions

Great place to run or stroll to explore. Has a lot to offer, along the water by the falls, green grass, and DT Minneapolis as a backdrop. Clean, safe, and taken care of.

Nice park on the west bank of the river and closest to downtown MSP. Follow the paths, enjoy the sounds of water and admire the skyline.

Great place to walk around. Great views of the river and bridge. It's not a huge park, but you can walk over the Stone Arch Bridge and explore more. Definitely recommend seeing this little park if in the area!
