"Close, Connected Community"

Although the name of the neighborhood of Victory is derived from the name given to memorialize World War I veterans and fallen soldiers, it also seems to represent the victory that the community has had in developing into a peaceful, nurturing community in which to live in northwest Minneapolis. The community is less than 20 minutes away from the downtown city life and accessible easily by bus or car on major highways and the interstate. It also lies among Victory Memorial Parkway and the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway that gives residents a great place to run, walk, skate, or bicycle amid the great views. The shoreline of nearby Ryan Lake is also being protected and restored so that it provides residents with another option for great recreation in nature.
The homes of Victory were built mainly in the first part of the 20th century and are owner occupied. There are also some rental units situated to the core of the community, and some larger homes near Victory Memorial Drive. The neighbors really seem to feel a sense of connectedness with each other and when you are in the neighborhood you see them walking down the streets and taking advantage of the shops and restaurants along the way. There are some great places to dine in Victory, especially on patio seating on a beautiful fall day.
