St. Louis Park's convenient location as a neighbor to Minneapolis means you're only minutes away from some of the Twin Cities' most attractive amenities: the Chain of Lakes, the downtown theater district, shopping, universities and major league sports.
St. Louis Park community is an established community of 10.8 square miles. In a little more than 115 years, it's grown from a village of 45 families to a community of just under 49,000 residents. We are proud of the numerous trails and parks in the community. The many trails connect us to downtown Minneapolis, the Uptown area, Hopkins and Chaska. There are 52 parks throughout the city to enjoy (11.5 percent of St. Louis Park's land is set aside for parks). These parks provide recreation, community space and beauty to all St. Louis Park residents in any season.
St. Louis Park is committed to being a leader in environmental stewardship. We promote environmental awareness and responsibility in all areas of city business. In 2018, the St. Louis Park city council adopted a Climate Action Plan with the ambitious goal of achieving carbon neutrality — having a net zero carbon footprint — by 2040.
