Victoria, Minnesota - The Land of Lakes and Parks

The city of Victoria, located in Carver County on the western edge of the Twin Cities, where a park or lake doesn't come standard with every new home built. It just seems that way. Within the city’s roughly 10-square-mile land area, there are 22 parks and 12 lakes. And that doesn’t count the massive Lake Minnetonka, which is just across the small town’s northern border, or Lake Waconia, which is just west of the city. Indeed, Victoria is known as The City of Lakes and Parks for good reason. Although the serenity of the city’s natural areas is a strong draw, there are other reasons why new homes in Victoria are in high demand.

Victoria's new home construction took off in the 2000's

A common reaction among people visiting Victoria for this first time goes something like this: “How can a beautiful small town like this be only 25 miles from Minneapolis?” Victoria is like many other small towns throughout the state in that there’s a strong sense of community and community pride, and people know and look out for one another. But if this charming city once was a secret, that’s not really the case anymore. Victoria’s population more than doubled between 2000 and 2014 (when the population stood at just fewer than 8,500 people).

Much of the city’s growth occurred in the early part of the 2000s. Between 2000 and 2005, the number of new houses permitted per year ranged from 102 to 174. More than 100 housing permits were issued in 2013 and 2014. Unlike other cities, the vast majority of development in Victoria is single-family, detached homes. While the city includes multifamily and attached housing, it’s just a slice of what’s available. Some of the city’s residents work in Victoria, but many commute to jobs elsewhere in the Twin Cities and then return to their little haven. Highways 5 and 7 are the primary routes into and out of town, and Southwest Metro Transit is available for commuters who prefer to let someone else do the driving.

A look back at beginning for Victoria

Given the number of lakes and natural areas in the city – the largest is the 1,800-acre Carver Park Reserve –it’s not difficult to recall a time when Victoria wasn’t a city at all. Though its roots go back to Native Americans – it’s possible there was a year-round village of Native American settlers who lived between Auburn and Stieger lakes – the first European settlers arrived in the area during the 1850s, attracted by the area’s rich soil and the resulting agricultural opportunities. The hardwood forest that still exists in some parts of the city provided materials to build the area’s first homes. The city was connected to others via railroad in 1882, and Victoria’s first automobile is thought to have arrived in 1911.

Victoria has experienced a boom in new homes and new construction and as a result has become a much larger city over the years, but it still retains a quaint, tight-knit feel. Whether they’re shopping for groceries at Victoria’s Market, golfing at the scenic Deer Run Golf Club, dining at one of the city’s restaurants (the Victoria House and its homestyle food comes to mind), or working out or ice skating at the Victoria Recreation Center, people in the city simply know one another. Some of that is the result of proximity, but it’s also because of a shared pride in being part of a city that’s experiencing consistent, even growth. Among the city’s jewels is the aforementioned Carver Park Reserve, which includes miles of winding trails and wooded terrain, as well as the Grimm Farm Historic Site, King Waterbird Sanctuary, and Lowry Nature Center.
