Brooklyn Park Minnesota has miles of walking, biking and running trails! We have numerous parks and a great sense of community. There are so many activities to do in Brooklyn Park! If we had more family restaurants, Brooklyn Park would see a lot of business from its residents.

Great for Parks, restaurants and car dealerships! Great school districts and friendly people. Plenty of shopping but not the hassle of the big city parking and you are never charged. Also a very diverse spiritual community.
We have been living here in Brooklyn Park for 8 years now, and we live around retirees who have been here for 30 or more years, but there are also new people who move into the neighborhood. Some are immigrants or from different parts of the city. It’s a great place to live. There are many stores in the area that are African, Hmong or Asian. These stores help people feel at home knowing that what they like to make at home to eat will be stocked at the nearby store. The Brooklyn Park community is doing more to involve residents in the decisions they make.
