"A Nature Paradise"

The name Minnehaha is often assumed to have a humorous connotation behind it, and such an assumption would be correct. Minnehaha is the Ojibwe word for "laughing waters." Minnehaha Creek reaches its final destination in this neighborhood and forms the 53 foot Minnehaha Falls. Hiawatha Ave. runs right next to this waterfall and along Minnehaha Park where the greenery touches the Mississippi River. This community of water and green is truly a sight to behold. This is not only a popular place to live, but it is a frequented vacation day spot for people from all around Minneapolis. The park and river banks host many events throughout the year and are filled with spectators during the spring and summer months.

Minnehaha has many properties from which to choose, most of which are brick structures as well as many environmentally friendly homes that have been developing so as to preserve the natural integrity of the neighborhood. This southern Minneapolis community has access to downtown via Hiawatha Ave. and is just across Highway 62 from the Minneapolis- St. Paul International Airport. Just down the road are other larger regional parks and wetlands into which the Mississippi River feeds. Minnehaha is truly the outdoors-man's dream come true.
