  • Beautiful park near downtown Minneapolis, just across the street from the Walker Art Center and its famed sculpture garden - home of the Spoon Cherry. Loring Park is lovely with its picturesque lake and many walking trails. Four stars only because it's a little intimidating to walk through at night, alone, due to the homeless population.
  • One of Minneapolis’ great parks, especially if you like a skyline view. During the summer, check out the Berger fountain, and come for the Twin Cities Pride Festival, other festivals, and free music and movies in the park. Ample bicycle and walking paths, a dog park, jungle gyms, wading pools, basketball courts, horseshoes, and gardens.
  • In my opinion this is one of the best parks in Minneapolis! Beautiful landscapes like the trees, plants, and the fountain. Loring Park also had a wading pool, event center, bathrooms, tennis court, and a basketball court. Lots of events are held here such as Movies in the Park, Art Festivals, Beer Dabler, Pride Festival, Winter Carnival, and much more. Living in Loring Park in really convenient to almost everything downtown. It's a pleasant and friendly neighborhood I highly recommend it!
  • This place is great to go for on a date, family outing or some independent getaway. You have plenty to see. If it's not the fountains and architecture, then it will surly be the black and white squirrels.
  • This is really an amazing park nestled into downtown. It has great views and wonderful walkways. Lots of benches to relax. There's always people out and about enjoying the park
