Parks

Six blocks.

That's the longest distance any Minneapolis resident has to walk to get to one of our 197 parks. Don’t believe us? Try it out. When you find one, take in the scene and take part in the action. It's common to see pick-up soccer games break out, Frisbees whizzing around, bikers and joggers flowing by and people simply relaxing. And, with live music events like Music in the Parks, six blocks is definitely worth the walking distance. Hailed three years running as the best park system in the nation by Park Score (2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016), you can't visit the City by Nature and miss spending time in one of the acclaimed parks that beat New York City and San Francisco year after year.
