The arts are alive in Lowry Hill

Some of the Twin City's best attractions are just next door in Lowry Hill. The neighborhood gets its name from Thomas Lowry, one of the original developers and residents. He is also known for developing Minneapolis' street railway system. Shops, restaurants and neighborhood parks are abundant in Lowry Hill, as are historic Victorian homes, earning the neighborhood an A-plus grade from Niche, ranked the second-best neighborhood to live in Minneapolis. When locals wish to branch out, they have quick access to Interstates 394 and 94, with downtown Minneapolis only a few minutes east.

Hilltop Victorian estates

With hilltop homes and walkable residential streets, Lowry Hill is known for its architecture. Designed by a collection of famed architects from the turn of the century, the homes here reflect various styles, including Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, Italianate, English Tudors and Prairie-style homes. Many homes are Victorian houses built as early as 1900, with several listed on the National Register of Historic Places. While some have been divided into duplexes, triplexes and even quadruplexes, many remain single-family homes. Several of these classic homes are large estates, some offering lakefront views. There are also more contemporary homes, like midcentury modern houses, ramblers and condominiums. Condo buildings come in the form of sleek, modern mid-rise buildings and older, historic buildings that have been converted into units. Home prices in the area range from $98,500 to $4.4 million.

A place to learn

Children in the area attend Kenwood Elementary School, which has an overall Niche grade of A-minus. Next, kids attend Anwatin Middle School, which has an overall Niche grade of C. Teenagers attend North Community High School, which has an overall Niche grade of B-plus and was ranked the number 12 best public high school in Ramsey County. Parents can also send their children to The Blake School, a private, coeducational, nonsectarian Pre-kindergarten through twelfth-grade preparatory day school in the neighborhood.\

Cascading pools and lakeside trails

Thomas Lowry Park is the neighborhood park featuring seven cascading pools, brick walking paths, and benches. The Lowry Hill Neighborhood Association's Ice Cream Social takes place here. Otherwise, there's Parade Park, which includes many recreational amenities. Parade Stadium, Minneapolis' first public football stadium, is located at the park, as is Parade Ice Garden, where locals can ice skate and compete in hockey games. Baseball, soccer and softball players all have a place to practice at Parade Park. Just south of Lowry Hill is the Lake of the Isles, part of the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park. This sprawling blend of lakes, beaches and bike paths is one of the best outdoor recreation areas in the city. Residents can explore the Cedar Lake Regional Trail or swim, kayak and fish in any of the five lakes. Other nearby parks include Kenwood Park and the Loring Greenway.

The Walker Art Center

Residents benefit from living near some of the city's best arts attractions. The internationally recognized Walker Art Center is one of the country's most visited contemporary art museums, with over 700,000 annual visitors. The center presents contemporary visual art and design exhibitions, dance, theater, musical performances, and film screenings. Just outside the art center is the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, where visitors can experience over 40 modern sculptures amid scenic walking trails. The park's "Spoonbridge and Cherry" sculpture is its most famous. The garden holds Rock the Garden, an annual summer music festival organized by the Walker Art Center and Minnesota Public Radio.

Pinball and poached eggs

Lowry Hill residents have their pick of local eateries. Burgers, oysters, eggs, and whisky are on the menu at The Lowry; elevated Turkish and Moroccan fare can be found at Cardamom, and Sebastian Joe's Ice Cream satisfies residents' sweet cravings. Locals have not one, but two places to play classic pinball games. Morning birds can play while sipping coffee at Caffetto, while night owls can beat their top score at LITT Pinball Bar. When locals need their weekly groceries, they head to Wedge Lyndale.
