The Southwest quadrant of Edina is bordered by three major highways, 62, 169 and 100.  To the west of this region is the city of Eden Prairie, and to the south is the city of Bloomington. This quadrant has 10 neighborhoods which include Indian Hills, Creek Valley, Normandale Park, Indian Trails, The Heights, Brookview Heights, Braemar Hills, Prospect Knolls, Dewey Hill and Cahill.  The southwest region is home to 3 public schools, Edina High School, Valley View Middle School and Creek Valley Elementary.  There are 5 parks throughout, with the largest, Braemar Park and Golf course spanning 1/6th of the region.

This community has something to offer everyone. From affordable entry-level ramblers and split two story homes, to new construction and upper bracket luxury homes with great architectural detail.  The Arrowhead and Indianhead Lake neighborhoods offer private peaceful lots blanketed by majestic old trees.  From the hilly streets to the spectacular views of the water front, you will definitely get the feeling of being in the country.  Neighborhood streets in this community have been upgraded to include new sidewalks with dedicated bike trails. If condominium and townhome living is more your style, options include developments with varying price points and amenities.

A neighborhood favorite, Braemar Golf Course, offers some of the best sporting options in the state.  The Golf Course includes the Braemar Ice Arena, Sports Field & Dome, Golf Dome with paved walking trails and groomed cross-country ski trails open to the public.  Nearby Lewis Ridge Park offers soccer fields, a hockey rink, tennis courts and walking trails.  Another favorite, Nine Mile Creek is currently being renovated to include new walking and bike trails to be completed in 2017.

The Edina Public schools are deemed among the best school districts in the country.  You will find the Edina High School, Valley View middle school and Creek Valley elementary schools all housed within this community.  A short jaunt away brings you neighborhood restaurants and retail shops in the 70th & Cahill and 77th & Industrial Blvd areas.  Numerous lakes and parks also call the Southwest quadrant their homes, as well as various places of worship.
