Lake Nokomis Professional Review and Guide

"Lake Nokomis is anchored on the southern edge of Minneapolis’s Grand Round and makes for a perfect introductory paddle. While everyone’s over at the Chain of Lakes, you can mellow out a bit at Lake Nokomis to get your feet wet (pun intended) with
your paddle of choice. Rentals are available, and there’s a small beach where you can relax following the paddle.

Lake Nokomis is one of several lakes within Minneapolis’s city limits. Like some of the other lakes in the area, Nokomis was dredged after being purchased in 1907 to turn the former marshland into the lake we see today. Of course that doesn’t mean the city is settling. Over recent years, the lake has been the subject of various preservation projects to harvest native vegetation around Nokomis’s shores. Besides paddling, it’s a popular spot for fishing, relaxing on the sand, and walking, and cyclists might recognize the area from the
Minneapolis Grand Round ride."
