Prospect Park

A hilly, woodsy hamlet just minutes from both downtowns.

Prospect Park residents enjoy living in what's considered one of Minneapolis' best-kept secrets. Winding, tree-lined streets where no two homes are alike make this neighborhood a treasure that attracts a variety of residents.

Five reasons you’ll love Prospect Park

  1. Highest percentage of architect-designed homes in the city
  2. Diverse residents who are individualistic, community-minded and politically active
  3. Great views of the Minneapolis and St. Paul skylines, as well as the University of Minnesota and the Mississippi River
  4. The "witch's hat" water tower that sits atop the highest hill in Minneapolis
  5. Kids grow up, leave home and return years later to raise their own kids, many of whom attend Pratt School
