We found this park on a Saturday let's get lost day.
Ended up in this very beautiful neighborhood with some very stylish
old homes. The Lake's shoreline has trails for bike riding and walking.
Bordering Lakewood Cemetery is Lyndale Park.
A scenic park, with a Rose garden, a Peace Garden
and a bird Sanctuary.
Hope you enjoy these pictures it was early spring so was not able to get
pictures of the Rose Garden.
Minnehaha Depot -
Milwaukee Road Station agents affectionately referred to this quaint little Minnehaha Depot
as "The Princess". It's delicate gingerbread architecture is reminiscent of the Victorian era when ladies in bustles and gentlemen in high collars traveled largely by train.

We have some pictures of the Falls and of the surrounding park.
This is a great place to take the family for a day of hiking and exploring.
The park is not really that large, and has a shaded picnic area with grills and tables.
The Minneapolis Parks Department has done a great job of maintaining this park.
Hope you enjoy these pictures!
