With a name like Tangletown, you might wonder what this southwest Minneapolis neighborhood could possibly have to offer, but it is definitely more than meets the eye. The community was actually previously known as Fuller. In 1996, it was renamed Tangletown based on the neighborhood’s haphazard street layout, which does not conform to the grid that is typical of the surrounding area.
The zip code for this Hennepin County neighborhood is 55419. It is bounded on the north by West 46th Street and on the south by Diamond Lake Road. Lyndale Avenue South creates the community’s western boundary, and Interstate 35W borders Tangletown on the east.
Parks within the community include Fuller Park, sandwiched between Harriet Avenue and Grand Avenue South. For dog owners, Fuller Park offers dog-friendly walking and jogging trails. An update to the Fuller Park Recreation Center is planned for the near future. If this neighborhood park doesn’t meet your recreational needs, Pearl Lake Park, Diamond Lake Park, and Todd Park are all located just slightly south on the other side of I-35. Lake Harriet is within walking distance to the northwest, and popular Lake Calhoun is just a short drive farther north; both lakes offer many amenities and are popular destinations for both visitors and area residents.
The nearest golf course – Hiawatha Golf Course – is a few miles away at 4553 Longfellow Avenue.
For residents who like to keep it local, Tangletown offers a Kowalski’s grocer, bed and breakfast, salon, coffee shop, and several small restaurants within its boundaries. For culture buffs, the Museum of Russian Art is located just outside Tangletown’s southern boundary at 5500 Stevens Avenue.
