East River Flats Park offers one of the few opportunities within the urbanized portion of the Mississippi River Gorge to easily access, interact with and view the river from a point below the bluff line.

The park is situated below 25-foot limestone bluffs and lies upon relatively flat deposits on the inner side of a large bend in the river and just below the University of Minnesota. It is the site of the boathouse for the U of M’s women’s rowing team.

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. (See East River Parkway section.)
