‘Lake Chipotle’: Flooded Parking Lot In Uptown Minneapolis Going Viral

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A flooded parking lot in Minneapolis dubbed “Lake Chipotle” is creating some online buzz.

The parking lot, located at a Chipotle on Hennepin Avenue and 26th Street, has gotten so much attention that a parody travel website popped up, calling it the “tiniest member of the City of Lakes.”

The Wedge LIVE, a hyperlocal news Twitter account, has been documenting the flooding-prone parking lot through the years. Here’s what it looked like last year:

The parking lot is flooded enough it can accommodate paddle boarding, too.


To top it all off, someone pinned the location as a tourist attraction on Google Maps, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek reviews.

“Beautiful sunset over this gorgeous lake,” one reviewer said. “It is a must see!”
