Lake Street Council 

Powderhorn Park is a thriving and diverse neighborhood in South Minneapolis. Known for its namesake park and annual Art Fair and May Day Festival, Powderhorn residents are famously creative and active in their community. The revitalized Lake Street is home to many unique local businesses and the restored art deco Sears Building complex that is now the Midtown Exchange. Powderhorn Park is well served by transit and residents have convenient access to the Midtown Greenway and can easily walk to destinations along Lake Street and 38th Street.

“I joke with my friends that Seward is like NYC. There’s international cuisine, corner stores, a live music hot spot, a co-op, a clay center & gallery, a playwrights’ center, a gym, a bagel shop, and even a bowling alley…We border the Mississippi-who needs Central Park when you can jog along the river?”
