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.

Accessory Dwelling Open Houses
The city has received interest in Accessory Dwelling Units (granny flats) from many stakeholders and is considering allowing them in Minneapolis. We invite you to attend an open house to share your thoughts about this potential policy change. Staff will provide research from other Minnesota communities and other US cities where granny flats are allowed, and will take feedback about how these could work in Minneapolis neighborhoods. Four Open Houses scheduled across the city:

The Southwest Senior Center supports caregivers through their adult day program, DayElders and their social work services. If you or someone you know is giving care to a senior, they may not know about the options available to support them and the person for whom they are caring. SW Senior Center social worker, Linda Walker, can help people understand the resources available. In addition, the DayElders Adult Day Program provides activities and services for people 50 and older who need support during the day and/or whose family could benefit from respite.
For more information, contact Linda Walker about social work and Laura Campbell about the adult day program at 612-822-3194.
