No Celebrities — or Crowds

OK, so the buildings ringing it are only 5 to 10 stories tall, not 50 to 60 stories — and none of them are famous (unless you count the Calhoun Beach Club).

And you won’t see any celebrities throwing Frisbees or otherwise kicking back.

But Minneapolis’ equivalent of Central Park’s Great Lawn is a lot less crowded, and actually abuts a real lake — Calhoun (Central Park’s Great Lawn is a couple blocks south of a reservoir).

Where exactly is this lawn?

Just off the northwest corner of Lake Calhoun.

While perhaps one-third the size of its (infinitely) more famous New York counterpart, Minneapolis’ “no name” lawn is every bit as inviting on a spectacular Spring day!

(And no, I only spent my lunch hour there today — not the whole day, tempting as it was).
