St. Louis Park

St. Louis Park is a progressive city that is located just west of the Twin Cities. Just minutes from downtown, residents and visitors are allowed to experience the attractions, events and excitement of a major metropolitan area, and still have the small town feel.

Some 45,000 people call St. Louis Park home for this reason, and find it a great place to experience all of the Twin Cities’ amenities: the chain of lakes, the downtown theater district, shopping, universities, and major league sports.

St. Louis Park also has 51 parks to enjoy (11.5 percent of St. Louis Park’s land is set aside for parks). Bike trails link St. Louis Park to downtown Minneapolis, the Uptown area, Hopkins and Chaska. The St. Louis Park and downtown area will provide you with plenty of fun and memorable moments.
