Bluff Street Park is a public park and picnic area located in the famed city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Please note that while there are no designated stargazing spots, the park is accessible by the public year-round and offers a biking path, walking path, nearby hiking trails, and a beautiful view of the world-famous Mississippi River. One EarthSky friend says “city lights are fairly bright to the south, but the other three cardinal points are dark.” Camping is not available, however the park is open until midnight for ample time to stargaze, admire, and wonder at the night sky. For more information, please visit online or call 612-230-6400.
