Page Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
If you like lakes and parkland, then Minnesota is the perfect state for you, and the south Minneapolis neighborhood of Page might be just the community for you to call home. Like many other Minneapolis neighborhoods, Page took its name from an elementary school in the community with the same name. Page Elementary, in turn, took its name from the American diplomat and editor, Walter Hines Page.
The small community of Page extends to Minnehaha Creek on the north and 55th Street and Diamond Lake Road on the south. Interstate 35W creates its western boundary, and Chicago Avenue bounds the neighborhood on the east. This Hennepin County neighborhood has a zip code of 55419.
Most of Page is residential. The majority of housing is owner-occupied dwellings, and the average housing value in 2000 was $165,700 – about $50,000 above the city median. You’ll find mostly two-story, colonial-style houses lining the quiet streets of Page, with most of the homes dating back to the 1920s and 1930s. As of 2000, roughly 1,680 people lived in the community of Page.
The neighborhood’s gem – Pearl Lake Park – is located near the community center. This neighborhood park offers soccer, football, baseball, and hockey fields. Renovated in the late 1990s, Pearl Lake Park also offers a playground and tennis courts.
Adjacent to Pearl Lake Park on the south are Diamond Lake, Diamond Lake Park, and Todd Park. Needless to say, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation when you live in Page. The volume of trails and parkland also make Page a great community for dog owners and their pooches.
Residents who prefer culture to nature can head to the nearby Museum of Russian Art at 5500 Stevens Avenue. This art museum is just outside of Page’s western boundary.
