The best gardens in Minneapolis are in Lyndale Park at Lake Harriet, home to a Rose Garden, Japanese-inspired Peace Garden, and several flower gardens that offer a beautiful respite in the heart of the city.

And, if that isn’t enough, you can do some birdwatching at the Roberts Bird Sanctuary; head over to Lake Harriet to play by, in, or on the water; or take a tour of the Grand Rounds.

Norenberg Gardens (Minnetonka)

Noerenberg Gardens along Lake Minnetonka feature a variety of plantings in a beautiful location west of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s right along the lake, with views over the Lake, but there is no beach or lake access. It’s all about the gardens!
