"Energy North of Downtown"

Holland is a northeastern Minneapolis neighborhood that provides a small town vibe close to the urban center. The homes are listed at reasonable prices, very few of which are for rent, and the majority were built at the turn of the 20th century. Residents are close to the Mississippi River and Jackson Square Park where one can engage in a variety of outdoor activities. The park is also has a sculpture for some aesthetic appeal, especially since this is pretty much the only green spot in the neighborhood. Holland is next to the starving artist community of Bottineau with some of the creativity bleeding between boundaries.

University and Central Avenues have the majority of restaurants and shopping spots, dotted with the occasional bar or coffeehouse, while the streets in between are reserved for residential spaces. Locals can get everything from traditionally made ethnic dishes to gifts to fine art. Should someone wish to travel outside of Holland, there are numerous public transportation stops at which to catch a quick ride to downtown or other nearby communities. Edison High School is the local public school and Edison Heights Field provides the students with fresh air and a modest green space for outdoor exercise.
Pros

  • Near public transportation
Cons
  • Can get overcrowded
  • not a lot of green space

"Reasonable home prices"

Settled in the northeastern part of Minneapolis, Holland is a largely residential neighborhood with most homes being built before1920. If you are looking to buy a home in the Holland neighborhood, you probably won’t face sticker shock as the homes are priced fairly moderately. There are a few rentals in the community, but not large apartment style buildings. You will most likely find duplexes and quad rentals, keeping that small town feel to the area as well.

Along Lowry, University, and Central Avenues you will find commercial and retail properties which offer residents everything from baked goods, automotive services, dining, and even art gallery space. If you can’t find what you are looking for in Holland there is transit service available to larger areas of retail and entertainment in Minneapolis.

Holland also has a high school in its community, Edison High, as well as the Northeast Library. If you’re looking to get out and about, Jackson Square Park might have just what you need. This park has various athletic fields, a wading pool, a basketball court, playground equipment, and picnic areas. They have also recently added an outdoor sculpture that is supposed to represent the community and the arts in coexistence.
