Urban Living, Neighborhood Charm
Highland Park, the neighborhood around 740 River Drive is a well-establish and sought after residential community. It’s rich in beautifully maintained homes that date back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The sophisticated Art Deco Horace Mann School, the Art Deco Highland Ford Parkway bridge and the Highland Park Reservoir are fine examples of Art Deco architecture. Buildings of outstanding architecture in the Modernistic style were built later, both for residential and for public use.
Highland Park benefits from its location along the Mississippi River, with its wide swath of parkland and pedestrian and biking paths, the proximity of large parks, and the presence of a beautiful park at the core of the neighborhood itself.
Highland Park is rich in recreational and educational venues. Every year, it hosts the Highland Fest, a summer festival that features music, an art fair, fireworks and other fun activities. A variety of other events and festivals occur around the year, both in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Highland Park is home to St. Catherine University, a well-known private university. Macalester College and the University of St. Thomas are nationally renowned private institutions located just north of Highland Park, in the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood. These colleges often offer events that are open to the community.
Highland Park is very pedestrian-friendly. A pleasant walk reaches a variety of restaurants, cafés, movie theatres and shops. The Village, about two blocks east of 740 River Drive, along Ford Parkway, is Highland Park’s main dining and shopping area, which includes a grocery store, pharmacy, coffee shops, and a variety of retail stores. Grand Avenue, with its many popular restaurants, bars, entertainment venues and shopping, is just ten minutes away.
