  • Great park to enjoy a stroll along the Mississippi. Lots of parking and the was groomed well. We enjoyed it during the February Blizzard...cannot wait to return in Summer.  more »
  • This park is on the opposite side of the river from downtown Minneapolis. If coming from there, it’s best accessed via bicycle or car. Walking there would be a bit of a hike but worth incorporating in...  more »
  • I love Boom Island Park! This is an awesome place to sit and watch the Mississippi River, enjoy the scenery and people watch. There is a playground for the kids and beautiful walking paths.  more »

  • Arguably the best park in Minneapolis for views and close to people and fun. Easily accessible and always beautiful. Fun areas to explore by the railroad tracks. A play ground that looks bomb, I always like a good sand pit 🤷‍♀️ the river is a looker from here and tends to be less busy than stone arch and there is actually space to run and play. The summer actually brings quite a bit of wild life such as birds and butterflies. Also I have taken wedding pictures here that turned out pretty bomb. And had my fair share of bbqs.
  • One of the best places to take photos in Minneapolis. Wide open park area with nearby access to biking and walking paths. Frequent police presence makes you feel safe and keeps teenagers from smoking the devil's lettuce and drinking fire water.
  • Great venue to launch Amy Klobruchar's presidential campaign. She would make a great president, although the odds are a bit long.
  • It is a nice park on the river and their is a cool statue at the entrance. I come to. This park often as it is a short bike away and the view of Minneapolis from here never gets old.
  • Big park has lots of trails &places to sit.Nice sights.
