The Minnehaha Bunny

A larger-than life-rabbit statue along the East Minnehaha Parkway, along the bike trail and near the road. Stop by and sit for a photo op. The whole of Minnehaha Parkway is a nice drive or bike ride as the five-mile ribbon-like creek and park travels through south Minneapolis. Start at Lake Harriet and end up at Minnehaha Falls.

[Scott Hebner, 02/08/2015]

Sculpted by Jeffrey Barber in 2002, the big bronze bunny's official name is "Cottontail on the Trail," but everyone else calls it The Minnehaha Bunny. Offerings of craft-made baby bunnies and Easter eggs are usually left at the statue in early Spring. March 2015: Photo added.
