I have grown up here, and wouldn't have had it any other way! There is so much to do, and it is so close to so many things. Close to Lake Harriet and Lake Calhoun, there is always something to do physically. The downtown linden hills area has some great shops, Sebastian Joe's ice cream is a go-to any day of the year. Great Harvest Bread Company has delicious options from honey whole wheat to their apple crunch mini loaf, you can't go wrong. Also you get a free sample :) The parks system is great for youth with open grassy areas, tennis courts, and youth leagues for all sports. In close proximity to uptown, and not too far from downtown, everything is a bike ride away. National Night out is always a favorite bringing neighbors together and fantastic activities for the kids depending on the block.

I love linden hills because of how safe I feel and how friendly the neighbors are. There a really nice bakery and restaurants nearby and not to mention boutiques. There are really good job opportunities at retails stores, coffee shops, and nearby parks.
For 21 years, I have been blessed to live in my neighborhood. This is due to several factors. The first reason is due to environmental consciousness. According to "patch of earth.com", my neighborhood was ranked #1 in most environmentally aware neighborhood in the nation. From an early age I learned the environmental benefits of composting. The neighborhood council voted "yes" on providing composting bins that would be recycled/handled by the Minneapolis Waste Management.

Another perk of living in this neighborhood was the parks. In 1889 there was a meeting between Charles Loring and Horace Cleveland, (two businessmen who had an impeccable love for nature), that helped structure the park scene in Minneapolis. They demanded that every house be 6 blocks away from a park. With that being said, I have been able to be reap the benefits from them by participating in sports activities from 8u baseball to varsity tennis.

If I had the option to choose to live here again, I would absolutely jump at that opportunity. The atmosphere is diverse, eco-friendly, and clean. Everyone here is extremely friendly, and that reputation tends be something that is very hard to find in a lot of communities. I am confident that my neighborhood will continue to prosper in the areas of diversity, eco-friendliness, and good maintenance.
