Keewaydin

Location and General Characteristics

The Keewaydin neighborhood is located on the south side of the city, from Minnehaha Parkway on the north to 54 th Street East on the south, and from Cedar Avenue South on the west to 34 th Avenue South on the east. Most of Lake Nokomis is within the neighborhood's boundaries.

Keewaydin neighborhood, like Minnehaha and Hiawatha neighborhoods, received its name from an Ojibwe legend mentioned in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, The Song of Hiawatha. "Keewaydin" is Ojibwe for "northwest wind," or "the home wind."

Neighborhood stores at the holidays. A gift shop and a corner café offering pastries and hot beverages could turn a winter stroll around Lake Nokomis into a cozy treat.
