Minnehaha Creek extends from Lake Minnetonka in the west and flows east for 22 miles (35 km) through several suburbs west of Minneapolis and then through south Minneapolis.

Including Lake Minnetonka, the watershed for the creek covers 181 square miles (470 km2).[citation needed] The creek continues over the Minnehaha Falls toward the Mississippi River.
