Northeast Edina: Strachauer Park

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

With a population of 800 residents, the Strachauer Park neighborhood is situated in the Northeast quadrant of the city of Edina. It is bordered by 60th Street to the north, Xerxes Avenue to the east, Highway 62 to the south, and France Avenue to the west. This mainly residential neighborhood was established as three subdivisions, Bel-Air, Town Realty Edina Terrace, and the Erickson Addition. Its 300 homes are mainly of the 1950’s era.

The neighborhood and park both derived their names from Herman Strachauer, who is credited with being the “father” of Edina’s parks. Herman was a member of Edina’s park board from its creation in 1948 until 1961, serving as president of the board from 1951-1960. The neighborhood’s 800 residents all love the area for its family-oriented atmosphere.

The Strachauer Park neighborhood is home to one park which shares its name:

Strachauer Park: The local Strachauer Park, from which the neighborhood derives its name, is a 5-acre park with soccer fields, a skating and hockey rink, warming house, basketball courts and a playground. The park is a wonderful spot to watch the city’s amazing 4th of July fireworks. The fireworks are shot over Lake Cornelia, southwest of Strachauer Park, and getting the best views requires an early arrival because of how many people like to come. Throughout the year, the park sees a wide array of visitors and is even an off-leash dog area seasonally.
