William Berry Park

Dakota footpaths between Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska and Lake Harriet were later followed by a county road, a steam railway, park boulevards, and bicycle paths. Tour William Berry Park, containing the last remnants of natural landscape in Linden Hills, developed by and renamed in honor of the first

Minneapolis Superintendent of Parks. Follow Richfield Road and learn of early residents along the edge of Interlachen Terrace and Cottage City.

Lake Harriet at Linden Hills has evolved from a country resort to an urban park shared by residents and visitors. View this setting unique in the historic continuity of activities from picnics and concerts to the Como-Harriet Streetcar line. Trace the ongoing park and neighborhood transformation from natural lakeshore and woodland.

This tour walks 1.5 miles and is led by Peter Sussman. Please wear sturdy shoes. This tour is not ADA-accessible.
