The Lake Edina neighborhood, with a population of 1,000, is situated in the southeast quadrant of the city of Edina. It is bordered on the north by 70th Street and the homes on Hibiscus Avenue, on the east by Arneson Acres Park and the homes on Monardo Lane, on the south by Fred Richards Golf Course, and on the west by Highway 100. This neighborhood hosts the popular Arneson Acres Park which is where the Edina Historical Society is located, along with the Edina Museum and the city’s greenhouse. Also within this neighborhood is Lake Edina, providing lakeshore backdrop to many of its lots. As with most of Edina, this neighborhood was built mid-century, and many the homes are one-story ramblers.

Lake Edina is a 24-acre body of water of unknown depth near the southern border of Edina. The lake is maintained by stormwater runoff from much of south portion of the city. The lake is high in nutrients but that makes it hard to swim in or fish in. As such it a non-public lake. While the lake cannot be accessed recreationally, it offers wonderful scenery for the houses along its shores.

Arneson Acres Park: Arneson Acres Park is the only park located within the Lake Edina neighborhood. A unique park, Arneson Acres was originally a tree nursery. The owners donated their home and the attached 13.2 acres to the city of Edina with the condition that a greenhouse be established for the natural plants in the area. Today visitors can tour the park’s greenhouse and 28 parks. Also located within the park is the Edina Historical Society.
