Shingle Creek, in the city's far northwest corner, is bound on the north by 53 rd Avenue North, on the east by Humboldt Avenue North, on the south by 49 th Avenue North and on the west by Xerxes Avenue North. The neighborhood's northern and western border is also the City limits. Shingle Creek runs north-south through the eastern half of the neighborhood. The creek flows into the Mississippi River in north Minneapolis and is surrounded by parkland. In 1852 the first shingle mill in Hennepin County was built near the mouth of the creek, hence the name of Shingle Creek.
