Waite Park was named for Edward Foote Waite, judge of the District Court of Hennepin County from 1911 to 1941. Featuring beautiful homes and gardens, including a volunteer managed community garden, Waite Park also sits along the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway.
Waite park has many of Northeast’s hidden and not-so-hidden treasures. For example, since 34th Ave NE doesn’t go through, a path was created to allow pedestrian and bike traffic between Garfield and Benjamin Streets NE. From the homes to the parks, Waite park has many of these beautiful elements throughout the neighborhood. If you want to get to know Waite park really, really well, you should check out the awesome Walking Tour of Waite park on Minneapolis81.com.
We’re very excited about exploring the Waite Park neighborhood more in June as part of the Northeast Ride!
