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.

Met Council Rehabilitating Sewers Along South Side of Lake Harriet
Met Council Environmental Services (MCES) will be working along the south side of Lake Harriet throughout the winter, starting November 3, 2014. The walking trail will be detoured to the biking trail, making it a multi-use trail, to allow space for safe movement of construction equipment. This trail will be plowed. No tree removals are expected for this portion of the project. Be assured the Gnome Tree will be protected during this process.

Click here to view the current newsletter and to find out about the exciting things happening this fall at the VOA SW Senior Center.
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.
