“THE LAKESHORE CITY”

The city of Orono is a lakeside community on the north shore of Lake Minnetonka.  Orono was founded in 1889 and its East Coast settlers named it after the portside city of Orono in Maine. Orono is roughly 25 square miles and almost 10 square miles of the city is on the lake.  Lake Minnetonka has approximately 100 square miles, 10% of that lake frontage is the relatively small town of Orono- it’s no wonder its motto is “the Lakeshore City.” 

The city of Orono has a Co small population of 8,268 (2018 census data) compared to the geographical size of the city which lends itself to large lots, low density and abundant nature.  Orono is a highly sought after city with some of the country’s best schools, a reasonable commute to downtown Minneapolis, and some of the state’s most beautiful lakefront homes.

Orono has its own Police Department, Fire Department and City Hall. The quick response time and ease of access make Orono one of the safest communities in the state. Based on crime statistics, Orono is safer than 94% of the cities in the United States.
