Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but the state also provides ample parkland, and you’ll find no shortage of either in the Kenny area. Plenty of small to mid-sized lakes and parks can be found in neighboring communities, just a short drive away for Kenny residents.
To the north is larger Lake Harriet, and directly north of that is Lake Calhoun. These two lakes, part of the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes, constitute the single most popular outdoor attraction in the city. Just a short drive from Kenny, residents will find pedestrian and cycling trails, beaches, fishing docks, playing fields, volleyball courts, picnic areas, and plenty of other amenities. Kenny could be considered within cycling distance of these popular area attractions, but if you prefer to drive, both lakes offer pay parking lots. You can also rent bikes, kayaks, and canoes.
