New Homes in Prior Lake, Minnesota

 New Homes in Prior Lake MN

 The entertainment capitol of the Twin Cities Metro...

When it comes to entertainment and recreation options, Prior Lake may not have an equal for a city of its size. Of all the parks in the city, Cleary Lake Regional Park may be the most popular. It includes a golf course, campground, miles of trails among a wooded landscape, and a swimming beach. There’s more swimming options on Prior Lake, where the city operates two public beaches that feature beautiful sand areas. Golfers have it particularly good in Prior Lake, which includes the Legends Golf Club, Wilds Golf Club, Meadows at Mystic Lake Golf Course, and the course at Cleary Lake. In addition to unique bars and restaurants, Prior Lake also features Mystic Lake Casino and Hotel, which includes a number of dining options and attracts top comedians and musicians.  And there’s no bigger community celebration than Lakefront Days Summer Celebration, a three-day family festival that takes place in Lakefront Park on the southern end of Lower Prior Lake.

To say the waters of Prior Lake are the center of the city by the same name is accurate in more ways than one. Geographically speaking, the lake is situated such that it splits the city of Prior Lake in two. But it’s also a central part of the community itself, serving as something of a recreational gathering point for people who enjoy swimming, fishing, snowmobiling or simply enjoying a boat ride on an idyllic lake. Located about 20 miles southwest of Minneapolis, Prior Lake experienced a population boom in the 1970s and has continued to attract new residents since then.

Part of the city’s draw, of course, is Prior Lake itself, which actually is two lakes – Upper and Lower Prior lakes – connected by a shallow, but navigable, channel. But Prior Lake also has a charming and historic downtown area that unifies the 18.3-square-mile city, as well as an abundance of non-water-related recreational options. Pair that with a diverse local economy and the presence of the recently upgraded Highway 13, which offers easy access to other suburbs and Minneapolis and St. Paul, and you have a recipe for an alluring city. Since its population increased to 4,127 in 1970, Prior Lake has continued to experience steady growth. Its population in 2014 was just less than 25,000 people, and it’s projected to have 40,500 residents by 2040.

Prior Lake offers a diverse array of housing types. While the majority of the city consists of detached single-family homes, there also are townhomes, duplexes, triplexes and multifamily housing units. Construction of townhomes and multifamily units was especially strong in the early 2000s, while detached single-family homes have made up the vast majority of new housing options in recent years. There are more than 55 parks and 100 miles of trails and sidewalks, which at once promote recreation and serve to connect neighborhoods and the community as a whole.

Known today as a city that fosters growth in jobs related to innovation and technology, Prior Lake also pays homage to its roots. The name Prior comes from Charles H. Prior, who was superintendent of the Minnesota Division of the Milwaukee Railroad when the city began. The city was home to the Grainwood Hotel, which drew wealthy visitors from the East who recreated on Prior Lake in catamarans and sailboats. While the hotel no longer exists, the city’s logo is a sailboat and nearly half of its present economy is in the accommodations and food services sector. Downtown Prior Lake retains a small-town feel with its brick buildings, and includes boutiques, floral shops, restaurants, and the well-known Edelweiss Bakery. In addition, there’s a farmers market full of fresh produce and other foods every Saturday. There’s been a concerted effort to revitalize the downtown area during the past decade and the result is a modern yet cozy atmosphere.
