This neighborhood is very beautiful and quaint. It is located near multiple lakes and has multiple little parks and coffee shops. It is a great neighborhood for anyone with a family or with pets. This area is close enough to the cities to make the commute to a city job breezy or an Uber from a concert cheap. I would consider the downside of this neighborhood to be the lack of diversity and the abundance of pets without leashes. There are many people who own pets here as well as many people who visit with pets. As someone in the area who lives with a person deathly afraid of dogs I have seen the struggle for them to walk outside without being harassed by dogs running wild. There does not look to be any effort to educate or encourage people to leash their pets in these areas. In addiction, the lack of diversity in the area has contributed to mistreatment of people very close to me that live in this area. I hope that these things will be improved upon in the future of this neighborhood.

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.
