Minnetonka Real Estate
The second-largest of the Lake Minnetonka cities that create the Western metro, Minnetonka, population 51,000, has much to offer residents and visitors alike. Derived from the Dakota Indian word mini tanka, meaning “great water”, Minnetonka was first settled by Dakota and Ojibwe Indians. In 1822 European settlers traveled along the now Minnehaha Creek to Lake Minnetonka, a Native American sacred place.
Minnetonka is 28 square miles of land and water. Average home prices are 404,700. In the Minnetonka School District (ISD 276), Minnetonka is home to the country’s largest privately held company, Cargill; and United Healthcare, Minnesota’s largest publicly owned company. Minnetonka provides its residents with more than 42 public parks, 40+ miles of trails, and access to Lake Minnetonka Grays Bay. The Minnetonka Ice Arena is filled with hockey and ice-skating enthusiasts. Fine arts lovers indulge their passion at Minnetonka Theater and Minnetonka Center of the Arts.
