Location and General Characteristics
McKinley neighborhood on Minneapolis' north side is bound on the north by Dowling Avenue North, on the south by Lowry Avenue North, on the west by Dupont Avenue North and on the east by the Mississippi River. The neighborhood and its elementary school are named for William McKinley, the 25th president of the United States. In 1996, with approval of the City Council, McKinley neighborhood annexed the North River Industrial Area. This area is located along the river and extends to Interstate 94. Many of the homes are two-story, single-family homes with wood frames; bungalows and some small stucco Tudors. Most of the houses were built between 1910 and 1930.
Perkins Hill is the neighborhood park, located between 34 th and 35 th avenues North near Interstate 94. As all neighborhood parks do in Minneapolis, it offers amenities such as playgrounds, picnic tables and well-kept green space.
