Given that major thoroughfares such as Highway 169 and Interstate 394 make up portions of its borders – and Highways 100 and 55 run right through it – it’s perhaps difficult to visualize the farms, fields, mills and dairies that once constituted Golden Valley’s landscape. Yet the city’s name itself can be traced to that time, as, by many accounts, it was named after expansive wheat fields that glimmered in the sun.

Today, the city includes a dynamic blend of residential areas, open spaces, as well as commercial and retail areas. While its population is slightly lower than it was in the 1970s, the number of people living within its 10 or so square miles has been – and is forecast to remain – fairly stable at between 20,000 and 22,000. Located in Hennepin County and bordered in part by Minneapolis, Golden Valley is one of the suburbs considered fully developed. Single-family homes, many built in the 1950s and 1960s, make up about three-quarters of the city’s housing stock. Still, many new single-family homes are permitted each year, and redevelopment opportunities in the city exist, especially for multifamily units. 

Despite the ease of getting just about anywhere from Golden Valley, including downtown Minneapolis, retail developments exist throughout the city. One such area is near the intersection of Highway 100 and Duluth Street on the city’s northern side. There’s another at Winnetka Avenue and Highway 55, which includes a variety of shops and restaurants and is designed with walkability in mind. 

 Just south of that area is Brookview Golf Course, a popular public course that features an 18-hole regulation course as well as a nine-hole course. In addition to the golf course, 15 percent of Golden Valley’s land base – more than 1,035 acres – is made up of parks and open space. One of the city’s biggest draws is the 759-acre Theodore Wirth Park, which Golden Valley shares with Minneapolis. The park includes an abundance of trails in a wooded setting, as well as two golf courses and water including Wirth Lake and Bassett Creek. One fun fact about the park is there’s a marker at Wirth Parkway and Golden Valley Road on the park’s northeastern side that denotes the exact halfway point between the equator and the North Pole.
