“Lake Minnetonka’s southern gem”

Greenwood is a little city in Hennepin County with a population of roughly 750 people. The total square miles for the city is 0.61 with 0.25 of those square miles being on Lake Minnetonka. 

  •  Greenwood is one of the smallest Lake Minnetonka communities. 

  • With its location on St. Albans Bay looking straight West, the sunsets are amazing for the lakeshore properties. 

  • Greenwood is located within walking distance to downtown Excelsior and all that charming village has to offer. 

Although Greenwood was officially founded in 1956, residents can be traced back to the 1840’s. When George Bertram traveled from New York to the Southern shores of Lake Minnetonka, he sought to create a village and farming community. He teamed up with a home builder, Robert McGrath, and began to construct homes in the original Excelsior township. 

 For what it lacks in size, Greenwood makes up for in community. 

  • The small population is focused on building community and enjoying all that the area has to offer. There is an annual 4th of July parade, outdoor concerts at the Old Log Theater and a community wide ice fishing group. 

  • Greenwood Park is a common meeting place for Greenwood residents.
