MINNEAPOLIS: NOKOMIS NEIGHBORHOODS


FIELD, REGINA and NORTHROP:

These three adjacent neighborhoods were part of the first land acquired by the United States in what eventually became Minnesota. Field, Regina and Northrup are all located between Lake Harriet and Lake Nokomis, less than 10 minutes from downtown. The area lies just east of 35W. Minnehaha Parkway winds through the neighborhood, providing a scenic backdrop for runners, bikers, and rollerbladers. The majority of homes were built in the 1920s and 1930s in the Tudor style. Chicago Avenue is the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare and leads directly into the business district at 48th and Chicago. From brew pubs and boutiques, to bakeries, to a sushi bar, Mexican cuisine, and a movie theater, the area has a bit of everything for everyone. Nearby McRae Park has benches for relaxing and paths that wander through gardens and a prairie. Also included is a wading pool, hockey rink, volleyball courts, and three playgrounds.

HALE, PAGE and DIAMOND LAKE:

These three contiguous neighborhoods are largely unsung jewels located in a residential pocket of south Minneapolis , rich with natural amenities like parks, plenty of green space, and bodies of water (Diamond Lake and Lake Nokomis). Minnehaha Creek runs through the neighborhood and lies adjacent to Minnehaha Parkway, with its miles of bike and pedestrian trails. Families enjoy the larger-than-life bronze sculpture of a rabbit located along the Minnehaha Parkway appropriately named Cottontail on the Trail. Cottontail represents both the animal life and whimsy of the neighborhood. Nearby Pearl Park has baseball diamonds and a playground. The majority of housing is single-family homes, ranging in styles from early 1900 two-story Colonial and Tudors to 1950s ramblers. Chicago Avenue traverses the neighborhood, and 35W is less than 5 minutes away.

Average Sale Price of a Single Family Home in Hale: $295,000

KEEWAYDIN, MINNEHAHA, MORRIS PARK and WENONAH:

This cozy, tree-lined neighborhood nestled between Lake Nokomis and Minnehaha Creek is steeped in Native American influence: The names Minnehaha and Keewaydin are derived from Ojibwe and mean “laughing waters” and “northwest wind”, respectively. Prior to 1900 these areas remained centers for American Indians. It wasn’t until the 1920s that construction of single-family homes commenced. Today, this active community in the very southeastern portion of Minneapolis takes advantage of its miles of trails that are easily accessible (Grand Rounds Scenic Byway and Lake Nokomis to name a few), and dogs enjoy shaking out their wiggles at the off-leash dog park at nearby Minnehaha Park, Minneapolis’ oldest and most popular park with over 850,000 visitors annually. Minnehaha Falls, a 53-foot waterfall is at the heart of park, as are limestone bluffs and natural prairie land. Relax and eat fresh seafood at Sea Salt and enjoy music in the park during the summer. If seafood isn’t your thing, be sure to check out Al Vento - voted the best Italian restaurant in the Twin Cities in 2013 by City Pages. In 2004, the Hiawatha Line, a light rail transit system, reached Nokomis East and linked together downtown Minneapolis to the north with the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport and Mall of America to the south.
