The upper end of the park has a residential district with 43 historic homes dating from the 1860s to the 1890s.

Amenities at the park:

  • Amphitheater

  • walking paths through out the island

The park is a great place for a date, a stroll around a scenic area, picnics, gatherings, and anything else you would want to do in this beautiful refuge in the heart of Minneapolis.
