"And Also a Great Middle School and Government Offices"

The Boardwalk neighborhood in Larkspur is best known for its namesake, the boardwalk that leads you out to the homes along the water. There is no road access directly to these homes, so there is a big parking lot at the entrance to the boardwalk and then residents have to hike it out over the wood boards of the walkway regardless of the weather. Kind of cool, though perhaps not the most practical way to live, and definitely a lifestyle whose days are numbered given the forecast changes attributed to Climate Change.

What locals also know about this neighborhood is that it is the location of Hall Middle School--Larkspur’s exceptional junior high school that is ranked as a perfect 10. This neighborhood is also the location of a handful of government offices, such as the Twin Cities Police Authority and the Office of City Business Licences.

Piper Park is also here. It is basically Hall’s baseball fields, but is okay for what it is.

That is pretty much it for this area.
