The eight-acre Father Hennepin Bluffs Park is located at the corner of Main St. SE and 6th Ave. SE.
The park offers direct access to footpaths and bridges that display a unique view of the Mississippi River Gorge, the downtown skyline, and the Stone Arch Bridge.
A portion of the park is officially known as Phillip W. Pillsbury Park. The Pillsbury Company donated 2.4 acres of land to enlarge the park in 1981.
Another half-acre of land on the bluff, Lucy Wilder Morris Park, was officially added to the park when title to the land was turned over to the Park Board by the Hennepin County Historical Society in 1989.
