Woodland Highlights:

  • The city of Woodland was incorporated in 1947 but has had residents since the 1870s. The land was initially purchased from the Native Americans in the 1800s.
  • Woodland is a residential community with approximately 500 residents and 190 households.

  • It is the smallest city in Hennepin County and is on the Lake. For its relatively small size of around .8 square miles, it has a surprisingly large amount of lakeshore with 5.9 miles of shoreline on Lake Minnetonka. 

  • The home lots tend to be large and are located on Wayzata Bay. Wayzata Bay has a water quality rating of A from the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, which helps drive a premium for the lakeshore with such a high water quality rating.

  • Included in Woodland's lakeshore is a little bay called Woolsey Pond. Grand drooping willow trees, lily pads, and lots of wildlife make this little back channel a must-see on the Lake.

  • The Assembly Grounds host historic buildings, charming homes, shared community grounds, lakeshore, and docking.

  • Maplewoods, an estate neighborhood in Woodland, is one of the few on Lake Minnetonka with rare virgin Maple forests and Sioux Indian history.

  • There are no retail or restaurants in Woodland. It is such a small little city that its city hall is located with Greenwood and Deephaven's City Hall.

  • The city of Woodland's violent crime rate is 100% lower than the national average.

  • Woodland is among the top 50 Highest Income places in the United States and ranks above any other Minnesota city on the list making it one of the wealthiest cities in Minnesota.
