Regina Apartments for Rent
The Regina neighborhood is nestled into Minneapolis’ south side. The community extends to 42nd Street East on the north and 46th Street East on the south. Regina’s western boundary is I-35W, and on the east it is bounded by Chicago Avenue. The zip code for this Hennepin County community is 55419. This small community was home to nearly 2,500 residents according to the 2000 census.
Like so many Minneapolis area neighborhoods, Regina was named for a school in the community. However, the community’s namesake – a parochial school – no longer exists. Instead, you’ll find a daycare center and a Head Start program on the former school grounds.
The Regina neighborhood is almost entirely residential. Driving down the streets of the community, you’ll notice mostly single-family homes, most of which were established before 1940. The median value of homes in Regina was $94,400 in 2000, lower than the Minneapolis average. You’ll also find some townhouses in Regina, including the Town Oaks Townhomes – located at 43rd Street and 4th Avenue South – that date back to the 1970s and constitute Minneapolis’ first major modern townhome complex.
There isn’t a great deal to see and do within the community bounds, but Regina is close to many of Minneapolis’ attractions. For example, Hiawatha Golf Course and Lake Nokomis Park are just few miles away to the southeast, and Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun are only a few minutes away on the west/northwest. All of these areas offer lots of amenities and attractions and are popular among residents and visitors alike.
For residents who want to avoid the crowds, Martin Luther King Park is a smaller park just on the other side of Regina’s northern border. All of the parkland and trails in the nearby area mean that Regina is an eco-friendly and dog-friendly community.
To the east of popular Lake Calhoun is the trendy Uptown neighborhood, which offers unique, sophisticated shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
