Lovely place to stroll as the sun sets. We grabbed dinner nearby and wandered by the falls as the sun set. It was very nice and peaceful.

Took time out of our Mall of America trip for a change. Easily accessible from metro station (which started at THE MOA). Beautifully revitalized area, tones of walkers and runners. Very clean too. Kids loved it .
