Best Park in the Twin Cities

Como Park is the Twin Cities' best park, without question. This large and beautiful park has many attractions: a stage inside its Pavilion, with open-air views of Lake Como and a restaurant below (many if not all performances are free); a wedding arch in the park, a large conservatory with many beautiful plants and several reflecting pools; an indoor carousel, an excellent zoo, a small amusement park, a golf course and mini-golf, and excellent picnic

facilities throughout the park. The Twin Cities are well known for their excellent park system; Como Park is its crown jewel.
