"Small Slice of Family Heaven"

King Field is where people go to feel at home, inside or outside of their physical dwellings. This beautiful, tree shaded neighborhood is repeatedly noted for its community spirit and collective effort to keep the area safe and well kept. King Field has East Harriet to the west and I-35W to the east, providing residents with a quick route in and out of the neighborhood. The Dr. Martin Luther King Park has the Reed- Sweatt Family Tennis Center and trails for those wishing to stay active. The Martin Luther King Center is also a site for a variety of community activities.

Nicollet Ave., also known as "Eat Street," runs through King Field and offers the local population a variety of eating options from bistros to delis to coffeehouses. To add some aesthetic appeal to the community, there is an ongoing mural project that was launched several years ago. A middle school and preschool also call King Field home, marking this neighborhood a suitable place to raise children. Homes are listed at both mid-range and high prices, depending on each individual property, but the vast majority sell at around $200,000.
