Welcome to the City of Edina!

The Irish and Scot families who settled Edina in the mid-1800s wouldn't recognize the city that 100 years ago boasted a profitable Minnehaha Creek gristmill and a Grange Hall. Today, Edina – named for that gristmill – boasts a population of 47,000, a nationally renowned  school district, a thriving business community and nearly 40 award-winning public parks. Edina's greatest asset, however, is the people who live and work here. Hundreds of residents volunteer in City-sponsored programs and on advisory boards. Many more take an active role in the community by donating their time through various local organizations. What does Edina mean to you?
