Welcome to Southwest Minneapolis

Composed of nine distinct neighborhoods—Armatage, East Harriet, Fulton, Kenny, King Field, Linden Hills, Lynnhurst, Tangletown, and Windom—Southwest Minneapolis offers a picturesque backdrop and lots of retail and restaurants. Each of these quaint districts is within walking distance to parks, lakes, and outdoor recreation areas along Lake Harriet, Bde Maka Ska or Minnehaha Creek.

Quiet and affluent, this largely residential area has higher home values than the rest of the city, and many residents commute to Downtown, allowing for a peaceful suburban existence with many metropolitan amenities within reach.
