Northeast Edina: Minnehaha Woods

Tagged: Community Profiles, Edina Minnesota, Edina Neighborhoods, ,

With a population of 1,100 residents, Minnehaha Woods is situated in the Northeast quadrant of the city of Edina. It is bordered on the north by 54th Street, on the east by France Avenue, on the south by Philbrook Lane, and on the west by Wooddale Avenue. Minnehaha Woods truly characterizes a neighborhood with many different housing options. The 360 homes were built mostly in the early 1930’s, and several more in the late 1900’s. The most common housing styles are two-story ramblers. Naturally, the neighborhood derives its name from being filled with so many mature trees, curving streets, and the stunningly picturesque Minnehaha Creek flowing through its spacious land.

The previously mentioned Minnehaha Creek provides a beautiful view for many homeowners who live near its flowing waters. This popular and well-known creek stretches through the northern border of the Hilldale and Todd Park neighborhoods, then travels through Sunnyslope, Country Club, Arden Park, and Minnehaha Woods. Later, it springs over nearly to the tip of the Pamela Park neighborhood, then swerves north again, acting as the geographical divider between Chowen Park and Creek Knoll before plummeting into Minneapolis. The creek winds its way to the cliff of the beautiful Minnehaha Falls and the Mississippi River, a popular tourist destination in the area.

While there are very few amenities located directly within the Minnehaha Woods neighborhood, residents prefer it that way. As one of the more beautiful and peaceful areas within the city, Minnehaha Woods is a highly desirable community in which to live. Residents desiring shopping, entertainment, or parks can easily find numerous options in the surrounding neighborhoods and cities.
