Better way to get to Mother Lake is to take the Crosstown east to Bloomington Ave exit. The parking lot is on your left almost immediately after you exit the highway.
Or take Cedar and exit at 66th St. Go west to the Richfield Parkway roundabout and you'll see the parking lot on the right after you pass Home Depot.

Subject: [mou-net] Least Tern Hennepin clarification
To clarify directions to Mother Lake in Richfield (?), Hennepin Cty,
in the southeast quadrant of the intersection of Hwys 62 and 77 :
On Hwy 62, take the 28th AVENUE exit
south one blk to 59th or even 591/2 STREETs. There is an open space where
you can look west toward the small lake.
Least Tern has been feeding over the open water for 15-20 min., then flies
away usually toward the airport, or disappears somewhere, then seems to
magically reappear over the open water again maybe 20, 30, 40 min. later.
(Thank you to the person who corrected my earlier directions!!)
