Windom Park is in the Northeast community of Minneapolis, and its geographical location is exactly what the community name suggests. Lowry Avenue NE borders the neighborhood on the north on the west by Central Avenue NE, on the south by 18th Avenue NE and on the east by New Brighton Boulevard. The name for the neighborhood was derived from that of William Windom, a man who served in the 1800’s as a United States senator from Minnesota and as secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury. Windom Park is mostly a traditional and residential neighborhood that consists of single-family dwellings that dominate the eastern portion, and multifamily buildings that showcase the western portion, particularly around Central Avenue.
The previously mentioned street is in the neighborhood's western end, and is an extremely active commercial strip. Several ethnic restaurants row the street; showcasing how diverse locals are reshaping the neighborhood. The neighborhood has been a home for immigrants from all over the world for a long time. Windom Park is also adjacent to the Quarry, which is a large and handy shopping location with a full-service bank complete with a multi-lingual staff. Even with all of these amenities, the neighborhood continues to be quiet, peaceful and one of the safest areas in terms of crime. This wonderful neighborhood of close to 5,700 residents is truly a gem within the city.
Remaining true to its own diverse nature, Windom Park’s houses fluctuate in age and style from early 1900’s Folk Victorians, Four-squares, and bungalows to mid-20th-century Colonials, Tudors, and Cape Cods. The neighborhood showcases mainly single-family homes and duplexes, each providing front porches.
If you love bakeries, the most popular in not only the neighborhood but also the entire community is Solomon’s Bakery. They consistently provide fresh baked goods on a daily basis to fans from all around. Their smell alone is enough to lure patrons inside to see what they have to offer. Another great place to get tasty food is The Mill. They are the re-launch of the former Mill City Cafe. The Mill Northeast is a New American Restaurant with the same great food as the old Mill, but in a brand new home and style within the neighborhood. Another great dining option within the neighborhood is La Colonia. Specializing in traditional Colombian and Ecuadorian dishes, La Colonia offers upscale dining that visitors are sure to enjoy. With their generous portions and convenient online ordering option, La Colonia is a must-visit destination.
