North Mississippi Regional Park is 67 acres of greenery in the heart of the city. It's part of the Three Rivers Park District and is the joint effort of them and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board; it is a neighborhood favorite. There is plenty to do for everyone. For those who just want to wander around and soak in the sights, sounds, and smells, there are walking paths and biking paths. For the water lovers, there is a boat dock, a fishing pier, and a wading pool. There is also a selve-serve paddle sharing station where you can rent kayaks and boats to go on an excursion on the Mississippi River. There is a playground/tot lot for kids to enjoy and a picnic area when you want to have a bite to eat.
