Columbia Park

The Columbia Park neighborhood in northeast Minneapolis is bound on the north by 37th Avenue, on the east by Central Avenue, on the south by 27th Avenue and St. Anthony Boulevard and on the west by University Avenue NE, 4th Street NE and the Mississippi River.

This neighborhood was named for three reasons: Columbia Park, one of the area’s parks; the park’s acquisition in 1892, the "Columbian" year, the 400th year since Christopher Columbus’ first voyage to the Americas; and the adjacent suburb Columbia Heights.

The neighborhood has residential areas tucked away with industrial surroundings, between the city of Columbia Heights and the neighborhood’s Columbia Park and golf course. Its north end consists of a narrow strip of streets from Main Street to Central Avenue while Columbia Boulevard, which runs north of the golf course, looks much like Minnehaha Parkway with the same type of housing – stucco and brick Tudors and two-story colonials. Columbia Park, a 183-acre park run by the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, is home to the Columbia Golf Course, which was established in 1919 and is the second oldest golf course in the Minneapolis parks system.
