- TIP: Take a post-park detour into the Linden Hills neighborhood and enjoy some air conditioning at Wild Rumpus or Creative Kidstuff or Heartfelt, plus grab some ice cream at Sebastian Joes. Read my whole blog on the Linden Hills neighborhood here.
- Maybe head over to Lake Harriet (since you’re so close already) to feed the ducks or watch the sailboats
What to bring?
