Things to Do in Linden Hills

Residents have many options when it comes to recreation, from enjoying a summer evening concert at the Lake Harriet Bandshell to taking a Linden Hills Walking History Tour of the neighborhood's historic structures, and picnicking, jogging, or biking around Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun's trails, there's something for everyone.

Minneapolis is known for its many lakes and Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun are no exception. Popular activities here include wintertime parasailing, windsurfing, canoeing, fishing, and swimming. If you're looking to spend a meditative afternoon, the Lyndale Park Rose Garden—the second oldest rose garden in the United States—is an excellent place to start. After you've taken a peaceful stroll around the rose garden, the Lyndale Park Peace Garden—located adjacent to the rose garden—features a rock garden, a bronze sculpture by local artist Caprice Glaser honoring Sadako Saski, a young girl who developed cancer as a result of radiation from the Hiroshima atom bomb, relic stones from Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and a Hibakuska tree that memorializes the victims of the bombings.
