Welcome to the East Harriet Neighborhood
East Harriet is bordered by 36th Street on the north and 46th Street to the south. Lyndale Avenue is the eastern boundary; Lake Harriet and Lakewood Cemetery largely make up the western border of the neighborhood. In addition to these Minneapolis landmarks, Lyndale Park Gardens and Rose Gardens, the Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary are located within East Harriet. Many houses in the neighborhood are two-story homes, set back from the streets.
The Kite Festival is January 26th
Don't miss the 18th Annual Kite Festival on Lake Harriet where kites of all shapes, sizes, colors and themes will fly over frozen Lake Harriet. Other fun family activities at the festival include ice fishing with Tips Outdoors, snowshoeing, an art project with the Minneapolis Institute of Art, music on the ice and a marshmallow roast. Farmstead Bike will be there with fat tire bike demonstrations. New this year, we'll have a heated tent with live entertainment!
Minnesota Kite Society experts will be on hand to demonstrate maneuvering spectacular kites throughout the day, offering their expertise to kite flying enthusiasts and to those who are new to the pastime. Bring your own kite, or buy one at the lake to support the East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association (EHFNA).

Volunteers are needed! Please contact Erica Chua at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-230-6479 if you'd like to help during this fun event.
Southwest Area Park Plan - Initial Concepts
