"Small Town Vibe in Southern Minneapolis"

One of the many southern Minneapolis neighborhoods that developed thanks to the street car, Morris Park is a little slice of heaven that is close to numerous important spots within the city. The light rail has taken the place of the street car and residents can easily travel to downtown without having to run into rush hour traffic found along the highways. The Crosstown Highway passes through the lower half of the neighborhood and the Minneapolis- St. Paul International Airport is close enough to sneeze on. This means residents have to deal with the noise of over passing airplanes. Morris Park is also home to the VA Medical Center, which is well known for it excellence in orthopedic medicine.

Those that live in Morris Park are close to all the green space they could ever want. The actual Morris Park is located in the center of the neighborhood and has the Morris Park School and Hiawatha Leadership Academy next to it. Lake Nokomis is a little less than a mile to the west and the Minnehaha Off-Leash Recreation Area to the east provides a place for dogs to roam free along the river banks. Minnehaha Park and Fort Snelling Gold Course are also nearby. This small town feel of Morris Park is further emphasized by the quaint local shops and cafes. Add affordable prices for the homes and Morris Park is the perfect town within a city.
