Lee Park is a residential neighborhood in Minneapolis-St Paul. The neighborhood is located at Lee Park around 36th Avenue, between Lilac Drive and County Road 81.
Just off Lee Avenue is Lee Park. This small park is frequently filled with young children using the playground. It is also used by many as a dog-walking park, for kite flying, and for just throwing around a Frisbee. The single baseball field is also popular for neighborhood games. The large open fields are frequently used by area kids for playing soccer and, of course, football.
On the east side of Lee Park is another area attraction, Lakeview Terrace Park. This large park is located off Crystal Lake and is an extremely popular destination for area residents throughout the year. The park has a public boat launch, making it possible to set sail on Crystal Lake. The lake itself is in huge demand for recreation and, of course, fishing. It is common to find the lake filled with boaters throughout the summer months.
Crystal Lake is also popular with land-based recreation. The park has three baseball fields that are used by area youth leagues throughout the summer months. Also at the park is a large field used for soccer, football, and a variety of other activities. The three courts at Lakeview Terrace Park are popular with area tennis players and are in regular use. Visitors will also find a playground and picnic tables throughout the park.
South of Lakeview Terrace Park off Oakdale Avenue is one of the largest hospitals in the local area, the North Memorial Medical Center. The medical center provides many of the health-related services for residents throughout the neighborhood and beyond. It serves many emergency patients due to its proximity to several major roads.
