Practical Information for Residents? Check out the FAQs

Small town tradition survives in Robbinsdale's typical main street businesses and family-friendly atmosphere. Affordable, quality, single family homes are the predominant land use. Abutting the northwest corner of Minneapolis, the City provides a quiet haven from the bustle of city life. A regional medical center, convenient shopping, lake vistas, a variety of recreation activities, all only 15 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. Or stay in town and Celebrate Whiz Bang Days the second weekend in July.

Crystal Lake Regional Trail - Commencement of Work

Work is scheduled to commence on  Tuesday February 24th.  The initial preparatory work will involve the removal of trees along the selected corridor with installation of support piles for the boardwalk on the western side of Crystal Lake.

As weather becomes more suited to construction, residents will see a significant increase in the amount of activity along the corridor. The trail through Robbinsdale follows the approximate alignment of County Road 81 and will provide a paved trail connecting with the Grand Rounds Trail system in Minneapolis and will ultimately extend to Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove. The trail will also provide cross connections with other regional and local trails.  More details and a map can be found at the Three Rivers Park District website at the following link:
