The City of Mound, Minnesota, is 3.18 square miles and has a population of 9,052, on the western shores of magnificent Lake Minnetonka. Located approximately 20 miles west of Minneapolis, Mound residents enjoy the attractions, events and excitement of the metropolitan area, while living in a quaint hometown atmosphere. The scenic beauty in Mound cannot be surpassed, being surrounded on all sides by lakes and trees.
Mound, which was named Minnesota's Best Place to Raise Your Kids 2012 by Bloomberg Businessweek, offers an array of amenities to its residents and visitors. Mound boasts Lake Minnetonka, which is 15,000 acres; 32 parks, 311 public dock sites, a state of the art skate park, and the Dakota Rail Trail - a hard surface biking and walking trail that extends 21.3 miles from Wayzata to Mayer that provides panoramic views of Lake Minnetonka along the way.
Mound Redevelopment, known as Mound Visions, has captured the charm of the early lake history in the design of downtown commercial and residential construction. The restoration of Lost Lake Channel brings Lake Minnetonka to the door step of the redeveloping downtown, and the Mound Greenway and Pier make it possible to boat to Mound!
