Just outside the neighborhood’s western boundary, in the city of New Hope, is Hidden Valley Park (32nd and Boone). This area park offers an asphalt hockey rink, pathways, play equipment, two basketball courts, three tennis courts, and soccer fields.

During the warmer months, this park is a popular picnic area, offering enclosed picnic shelters and grills.

When Winnetka Hills’ residents want to get out and see more of the Twin Cities, they don’t have to travel far for easy access. North 36th Avenue leads directly to Beltway 100, which connects residents to more of what the Minneapolis/St. Paul area has to offer.
