New Homes for Sale in Lakeville, MN

Living in Lakeville MN

A Young Suburb with a Long History...

It’s alternately called the Gateway to the Twin Cities and Where Nature Meets the Twin Cities. Either way, the monikers are accurate: Lakeville is in Dakota County on the southern edge of the Twin Cities metropolitan area, so it’s as easy to head north on Interstate 35 and get into downtown Minneapolis as it is to take the same road heading south and get into the country. As a result, Lakeville is undeniably suburban while still retaining the feel and charm of small town Minnesota.

In many ways, Lakeville is emblematic of the Twin Cities’ expansion. It’s among the fastest growing of the suburbs and has become a popular destination for people who wanted to live outside of the immediate metro area, or who sought the new housing options that sprung up as Lakeville’s population increased. In 1980, fewer than 15,000 people called the suburb home, and 10 years later its population was about 25,000. But the 1990s were years of growth for Lakeville, and it’s population jumped past 43,000 by 2000. Today, just fewer than 60,000 people call the city home. Between 2000 and 2005, more than 500 homes were permitted each year, and the majority of those were of the single-family variety. In each of the past five years, more than 200 new homes have been permitted, indicating continued growth. Lakeville’s population is forecasted to be near 75,000 by 2030.

Compared with other cities in the metro area, Lakeville is expansive, covering nearly 38 square miles. But just less than half that land is either agricultural or undeveloped, meaning there’s significant development and growth potential within its borders. Though the city is a relatively “young” suburb, Lakeville has been a popular spot for more than a century. In the early 1900s, a regionally renowned amusement park – Antlers Amusement Park – opened in the city, and shortly thereafter became something of a summer resort destination thanks to service from Minneapolis via the Dan Patch Line. The park, now known as Antlers Park, is still there today and located on the southeastern side of Lake Marion. The city recently approved money to purchase 6 acres and expand the popular park.

As its name implies, Lakeville there are a number of lakes – five – within city limits. There are three public swimming beaches as well as two public boat launches, so it’s not unusual to see people cruising the lakes on summer days. The lakes, though, are just part of Lakeville’s natural charm. It’s easy to feel like you’re well outside the city when you’re in the 2,700-acre Murphy Hanrehan Park Reserve (a small part of which is in Lakeville; the rest is just across its northwestern border) or the 340-acre Ritter Farm Park. In addition to those two parks, recreational opportunities abound in Lakeville, which includes 47 parks, more than 100 sports fields and playgrounds, and 25 miles of trails.

Despite its growth, Lakeville maintains a historic downtown area featuring dining options such as the Mainstreet Coffee Café, the Mainstreet Wine Bar, and the Lakeville Family Bowl. It’s also a community gathering spot for holiday ceremonies and parades. Though retail and accommodations/food service make up about one-quarter of Lakeville’s economy, the largest industry in the city remains manufacturing.
