Parkwood Knolls is a family-friendly Edina neighborhood featuring tree-lined streets with larger lots that have a nice mix of family and estate homes.

More than 60 years ago, Carl Hansen found an opportunity to turn western Edina into a different kind of Edina neighborhood. Diverging from standards set by the Edina Country Club, he chose to create a family-friendly area with meandering, tree-lined streets, larger lots and walkout lower levels. The first two developed streets, Parkwood Road and Knoll Drive, gave the Edina neighborhood its name: Parkwood Knolls.

As part of a first-ring suburb, this Edina neighborhood is conveniently located near downtown Minneapolis. Parkwood Knolls is bordered by Vernon Avenue on the south and Mirror Lake on the east. As the westernmost Edina neighborhood, Parkwood Knolls shares a border with Hopkins, giving residents easy access to the best of both cities.

In fact, Parkwood Knolls is served by Hopkins Public Schools as well as Edina Public Schools, If you prefer a private school experience for your child, Parkwood Knolls homes are located within a short drive from independent and religious schools. In addition to nearby St. Peter’s Lutheran, St. John’s Catholic, Academy of Holy Angels, our Lady of Grace School, the International School of Minnesota, and the Blake School’s Blake Campus, some Parkwood Knolls residents also attend Providence Academy, St. Paul Academy, Breck and others.
