Lake Harriet Park park offers picturesque views of the lake and the city. The bandshell hosts a variety summer concerts. A nice-sized playground near the bandshell allows kids to run and have fun before (or during) the music and movies. Families can walk around Lake Harriet, however, if you are bringing small children, you may want to bring a stroller. The paved trail is approximately a 3-mile loop and accommodates both pedestrians and bikers.
There are two pay parking lots with handicapped parking available close to the bandshell and concession stand. Free parking is available on the parkway. Those spots however are a bit of a walk from the performance space.
