The Lyn Park neighborhood is a subset of the Near North neighborhood in Minneapolis, MN.  It’s located next to the northwest tip of Downtown Minneapolis, just across Interstate 94.  Conveniently located on both Lyndale Ave and Plymouth Ave, the Lyn Park area serves as a main transportation hub between Downtown and North Minneapolis.

The area is rich in both history and diversity.  You’ll quickly meet a combination of long-time residents, arts, urban professionals, students, and the like.  Directly to the west lies the Old Highland neighborhood (also a subset of Near North), which features some of the most beautiful and historic homes in Minneapolis.
