Call Edina Home: A Neighborhood Guide

If you crave the accessibility and entertainment of the bustling Minneapolis city scene, but you don’t want to live in the heart of the city, Edina is a perfect option. Highways and improved transit make city life a quick trip away with the serenity that you can come home to the solitude offered in suburban neighborhoods. With an emphasis on high-quality education, varied community activities, accessible shopping and family life, Edina could be just the place you’ve always wanted to call home.

 
Brief History of Edina, Minnesota
Like much of Minneapolis, the earliest rumblings on the land that would come to be called Edina were in the form of milling and farming. Waterpower was capitalized on as the earliest settlers came to depend on Minnehaha Creek in the 1850s. Settlers hailed from Scotland, New England, Germany, Ireland and the British Isles. Different neighborhoods saw heavy pockets of certain populations, i.e., the Cahill Settlement was largely Irish while Edina Mills was home to many Yankees and Scots. The city’s name, Edina, was proposed by Edinburgh native Andrew Craik. According to the Edina Historical Society, it was voted in, 47 for and 42 against, in lieu of competing name Westfield.As the demand for flour and milling diminished by the 1880s, pastures for livestock grew as well as fodder crops (crops for animal feed). Dairy farms became a popular sighting in the early 1900s. The sprawling nature of Edina was about to be impacted, however, by the introduction of streetcars. Mobility is what brings cities to life, and that’s exactly what happened to Edina. The metropolitan areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul were now accessible by most who had been isolated in rural areas. The expansion of public transportation enabled those living on farmland to experience social and cultural expansion while those who lived in the crowded city could head to the suburbs for new home-buying prospects. The first sub-division, or planned community, in Edina was being created from 1921 to 1950 and was built to cater to the upper-middle class. With designs to suit families wealthy enough to afford a car, Edina was building itself up to be one of “the ritziest suburbs” around the Twin Cities. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, there are nearly 48,000 people (and growing) living in Edina. The average family is made up of three people, with the majority of people having earned at least a bachelor’s degree or higher.
 
Parks, Recreation and Fun in Edina
Although its history is laden with seemingly unexciting activities such as flour milling, the Edina of today is well-stocked with parks, arenas and activities that give a flourishing community some much-needed R&R any day of the week. Parks: Edina is home to nearly 40 different parks. Aside from a peaceful setting, many parks offer community members that ability to participate in many activities, including golf, basketball, tennis, swimming and more. And in the winter, it would be hard not to find a pickup game of pond hockey going on. Some of these great parks include:
Arden Park: Few parks in Edina match the peace and serenity of Arden Park. With a prime location along Minnehaha Creek at 50th Street and France Ave., this is the perfect place to jog alongside the best scenery, take photos of friends and family, or simply sit in awe of a creek that sprang up at the end of the last Ice Age.

It doesn’t hurt that these baseball fields are seated next to 500 acres of hills, lakes, golf courses, soccer fields, cross country skiing trails and more. This park has something for anyone, any day of the year.
