"Pleasant South Minneapolis Community"

Page is in the southern section of Minneapolis between Minnehaha Creek and Diamond Lake as well as next to I-35W. Those living here are able to take advantage of both the energy of downtown and central neighborhoods and the quiet serenity of lake side life. Page is one of three communities that is part of the Hale, Page and Diamond Lake (HPDL) coalition, in which all collectively work to keep the streets both clean and functional. Peal Park occupies the center avenues of the neighborhood and has a football and baseball fields as well as a skating rink. Residents can also visit Minnehaha Creek and the green spaces that border it as well as Diamond Lake just a few blocks to the south.

Though Page is very much like a suburban community, the main streets are home to several dining spots, coffee shops and other businesses that have opened up as the neighborhood has gained popularity. As additional people wan to relocate here, the housing prices gradually climb and are currently on the slightly expensive side. The majority of homes are historic prewar houses with one or two bedrooms that cater to a home owner population. Page maintains a suburban feel in a community that is only a few miles from downtown and other crowded neighborhoods. The many functional nearby businesses in addition to low noise and crime make Page an wonderful place to raise a family of live life alone in peace.

"Newfound Gem"

You can find the Page neighborhood on the far south side of Minneapolis, near Minnehaha Creek, Diamond Lake Road, and Interstate 35W. This location gives residents easy access to both the amenities of Downtown as well as those of the neighboring suburbs to the south. The Page community belongs to a greater community organization known as Hale, Page, and Diamond Lake (HPDL) that works within these communities to make sure there is continued growth and prosperity.
Page is becoming a more popular residential neighborhood, and the homes here are almost all single-family dwellings. The styles of homes vary, from early 1900s through the 1950s, and the prices of the homes are steadily going up as more and more people seem to want to move here. As the community has grown in size, so have the retail and business offerings. Restaurants, great grocery markets, and coffee houses offer the comforts of city life in this rather quiet community.
Near the center of the neighborhood is Peal Park, providing residents with places for football and baseball games, as well as skating and hockey. If you feel like getting even further into nature, local parks, trail, and lakes are only minutes away from this southern neighborhood.
