Located 12 miles north of Minneapolis, the suburban community of Brooklyn Park is situated along the Mississippi River. A city of parks and hiking trails, Brooklyn Park is a great location for those who enjoy being outdoors. Dozens of parks on over 1,700 acres include Zane Sports Park (home of the Farmer’s Market from June to October), Brookdale Park (featuring an off-leash dog park), Central Park, Hamilton Park, and many more. The parks include geocaching, picnic pavilions, and playgrounds.
Edinburgh USA Golf Course is one of the best public courses in the country, and Eidem Homestead is a ten-acre living historical farm. The Community Activity Center (CAC) is home to two ice skating rinks. Currently being redesigned to be energy-efficient and a much more “green” facility, the one-of-a-kind, geothermal design is set to be completed by the end of the year.
Brooklyn Park’s community events include the annual Brooklyn Park Tater Daze, a festival that features a parade, games, rides, a tater mash dance, and more. A few of the famous faces you may see in Brooklyn Park include Jesse Ventura, Tim Laudner, and Kirby Puckett.
Home to Target Corporation, North Hennepin Community College, and an active local business community, Brooklyn Park is a great location for those looking for apartments near the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area.
