"Urban Life Next to the Lake"

Located in southern Minneapolis, Diamond Lake is situated within the corner of I-35W and Highway 62. The community gets its name from, of course, Diamond Lake which is connected to both Todd and Pearl Lake Parks. The neighborhood is close enough for a short commute to downtown, but far enough south for the the non-invasive feel of suburbia. There are several businesses located along Chicago Ave. S. and E. 54th St. takes residents and visitors from Pearl Lake Park to Lake Nokomis, providing endless options for outdoor recreation.

Diamond Lake, though, is not for the low of moderate incomes since the majority of homes are listed at around $250,000. Renting does not provide a cheaper option in a community tat caters to home owners, but this is to be expected for any of the lakeside neighborhoods. In a city that is full of prewar homes, Diamond Lake mostly consists of larger houses that were built during the 1940's and 1950's. This are of Minneapolis is beautiful and functional place to live, but exclusively for those with larger paychecks.
