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.
I enjoy the ability to walk to Central Park from home with my son. There is a large play area for older kids and younger ones. The convenience of experiencing a round of golf, or going out to eat makes it enjoyable to stay near home. Brooklyn Park offers activities for all seasons in Minnesota such as an ice rink, disc golf, football and a variety to choose from through the city. The homes are affordable and allowed us the ability to purchase our home in 2010. There are many conveniences such as close gas stations, Hy-Vee grocery store, and main necessities such as car repair shops, dental and health clinics nearby.
