East River Flats is something of a hidden gem in Minneapolis’s vast park network. It doesn’t receive the fanfare of places like the Chain of Lakes and Minnehaha Falls, but it’s a lovely entry point to the Mississippi Gorge Regional Park area that lines the river throughout Minneapolis. Up the hill from the river, Tower Hill Park is home to the highest natural point in Minneapolis and has the views to match. The famous Witch’s Hat Tower that sits atop serves as an orientation point for miles around.
