In Plain Sight | Farview Park

The overlooked overlook. Whether its due to the northside location or the unexpected spelling, Farview Park is, perhaps, the most lowly high spot in Minneapolis. The steep bluff produces a commanding--and uncommon--view of the downtown skyline; perfect for watching fireworks in the summer and sledding in the winter.

The periscopes at Circle of Vision, an art installation created by Norman Andersen and Katherine Schaefer, provide a historic context for this circa-1883 park while you examine the view (pictured above) in all directions.
