HALE NEIGHBORHOOD (NOKOMIS): The Hale neighborhood is the unsung jewel of south Minneapolis. A part of the larger Hale Page Diamond Lake Community Association, the neighborhood is bordered by the Minnehaha Creek to the north and Lake Nokomis to the east. “Minnehaha” is Ojibwe for “laughing waters.” Prior to 1900 this area was inhabited by Native American Indians, and it wasn’t until between the 1920s and 1960s that many of the existing single-family homes were built. This neighborhood is quintessential South Minneapolis. Tree-lined blocks with small houses in a variety of architectural styles are characteristic of this area.
SCHOOLS: Your home resides within the Minneapolis Public School District, specifically within the boundaries of the Hale Elementary K-2, Field Elementary School 3-5, Justice Page Middle and Washburn High School.
LAKE NOKOMIS: Minneapolis is the City of Lakes, and the Minnehaha neighborhood is less than a mile from the banks of Lake Nokomis. Enjoy beachside dining, try your hand (or paddle) at Paddlesculpt a “yoga on the paddle board” experience, watch Lake Nokomis turn into the Pond Hockey Tournament Arena with endless games to watch on the frozen lake. Walk, bike, swim or skate your Lake Nokomis!
RESTAURANTS: Nokomis is home to several noteworthy eating establishments, easily accessible by foot or bike. Try a coffee at Nokomis Beach Coffee. Enjoy Sandcastle on the shores of Lake Nokomis. Check out Guavas Cuban Cafe, ie – Italian Eatery, and our favorite ice cream joint the Grand Ole Creamery. And all of this right in your own backyard!
MINNEHAHA CREEK & FALLS: Minnehaha Creek meanders its way across the Northern border of the neighborhood, and is banked by ample green space and park benches for its neighbors to enjoy the serenity of its sights and sounds. Connected to the Chain of Lakes and Minnehaha Falls by bike and pedestrian paths, this is yet another attraction to enjoy right in your own neighborhood.
CONVENIENT COMMUTING: Whether it’s by bus, light rail or car, the neighborhood is conveniently located near the MTC bus lines, Crosstown Highway 62 and Hwy 55 (Hiawatha). Just minutes away from both downtown and the airport, it’s easy to get home!
GRAND ROUNDS BIKING TRAIL: Steps away from your new home is the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway System. The 51 mile off-street Minneapolis bike trail loop takes you past the Chain of Lakes, Mississippi River, Minnehaha Falls and downtown riverfront. Riding the Grand Rounds is as close to a comprehensive Minneapolis bike tour as you’ll find. Whether you want beautiful scenery and skyline views, historic sites and museums, or to explore the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, you’ll find it on the Grand Rounds.
