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.

Spring Street Sweeping and Yard Waste Collection
Street Sweeping begins April 14 You can check the Street Sweeping Schedule Look-up to find out when the crews will be on your block. The schedule will be updated frequently to reflect the actual progress.
Please do not push leaves, grass clippings, or other debris into City streets – it’s bad for our lakes and waterways and it’s against the law.
Watch for temporary "No Parking" signs to avoid a ticket and a tow. Parking will be banned from 7:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on the day a street is swept. “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance. Vehicles not removed will be towed to the Minneapolis Impound Lot.
Yard waste collection begins this week! Place yard waste out, prepared to collection guidelines, each week on your garbage day for collection.
For more information, please visit this page.
