East River Parkway follows the east bank of the Mississippi River, much of it atop the river bluff, from the St. Paul city limits to Arlington Ave. SE on the University of Minnesota campus. Biking and pedestrian trails parallel the road.
A drive or a bike ride will take you past stately homes and attractive landscapes, as well as the University of Minnesota and the eye-catching Wiseman Museum on one side and the wooded Mississippi River bluff and the occasional glimpse of the river on the other.
Historical Profile: More information about this and other parks is included in Parks, Lakes, Trails and So Much More, a richly detailed account of the histories of Minneapolis’ renowned recreational system.
