Stopped by while walking the river way. Sat on the grass and enjoyed the view of the falls and the people strolling by. Any entertainment has to come with you as this is not a destination spot.

Mississippi River, much smaller than downstream, goes right by. You can see the Gold Medal Flour plant ruins made into a museum on one side and uber cool apartments on the other side. The park itself is well maintained and has a walking trail and...More

The Gold Medal Park is just so beautiful. It's so beautiful that a wedding party was having their photos taken inside the park. The park has nice wide paths and enough trees to sit under in the shade. The girls loved going most of the...More

This is a great little park right in the heart of Minneapolis' new US Bank Stadium. I have the pleasure of going for a run here a few of the mornings as it is right next to the bridge that crosses into St. Paul. From...More

An interesting but nondescript Park near the River. Maybe a good place to contemplate life, but nothing of excitement here.

Among my favorite corners of Minneapolis is Gold Medal Park. Whether by bike or by foot, the trails along the part a are wonderul metro hideaway.

Great, pet-friendly park to romp through on a beautiful day. Start your walk with a trip to Izzy's Ice Cream on the South edge of the park!

Quiet area to walk or hang out - nice green space in middle of city. Good exercise area - but great place to rest on a nice summer day.

You can't beat the beautiful green lawn with great sculptures, leading up to a tall slope with views of the river. Be sure to go inside the Guthrie Theater next door, take the escalator to the top, and look down from the balcony (for free!)...More
