Powderhorn Park Reviews

We've lived in Powderhorn for 10 yrs. It has wonderful diversity and a thriving arts community too. There are some issues with petty theft (package theft, looking for unlocked cars, etc...). But we've been able to stop those with some security measures. Neighbors are great. We live on a block with almost all duplexes and most are owner occupied. Some of the issues arise from our proximity to ChiLake Liquors. But being so close to the park, Mayday Cafe, greenway and Midtown Global Market make up for it.

Powderhorn Park is an amazing Minneapolis neighborhood! You get the best of both worlds. There are quiet and safe neighborhoods with parks and small businesses at every turn! At the same time, Uptown and the freeway system is easily accessible. City life is just a short drive away.
Nice people and setting near park and recreation however would like for snow cleaning to be better and traffic to be better controlled.
