    Paddle boarding is for people who can't or won't do any real water sports. Lame.

    Perfect place to go for a run; 3.1 miles around, or 5k. Good people watching and great views of Minneapolis. Renting a kayak or canoe is great fun as well

    Listen to the sound of those light and beautiful waves hitting the shore. And the gentle zephyr makes you feel much more. So natural and pure experience.

    Stay on the correct side of either the walking/jogging path or the biking path or I will materialize next to you and punch you in the throat.

    It can be really crowded pretty much any time of the day... but if you go around 1 or 2 in the afternoon it is a bit less hectic and you can enjoy more of Minneapolis' beautiful lakes :)
