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.

Calling all gardeners and would-be gardeners!
Are you interested in seeing a community garden at Lyndale Farmstead Park?
A community garden site was identified in the master plan recently adopted for Lyndale Farmstead park! Interested community members are invited to sign up for our contact list of stakeholders. Community stakeholders would be contacted during the planning phase to provide design guidance, show support for this initiative, and may be interested in participating in the garden when it is built. You don’t have to live in East Harriet to participate!
With interest from community members like YOU, we can build a community garden together.
If you are interested contact EHFNA here
