Arneson Acres is a unique park donated to the City of Edina by Morton and Katherine Arneson in the late 1970s.
Arneson Acres, 4711 W 70th Street, is a unique park that is home to the Edina Historical Society, Edina Museum, and City of Edina greenhouse.
The home and 13.2 acres were donated to the City of Edina by Morton and Katherine Arneson in the late 1970s. Prior to that time, the Arnesons used their property as a commercial tree nursery.
Today, the park’s 28 gardens are maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department.
Begin your tour of Arneson Acres in the Terrace Room on the ground level of the Arneson house. The gardens surrounding the stone terrace were planted by the Cloverlane Garden Club, part of the Edina Garden Council. Showy annuals are planted each year against a backdrop of perennial daylilies.
Walk out the door of the Terrace Room and down the driveway to the greenhouse. The Arnesons, avid gardeners, donated their property with the stipulation that the City build a greenhouse for the purpose of growing the annuals and perennials that the City plants in its parks and more than 100 public spaces.
The Edina Art Center provides the community with a place to view exciting exhibitions, enjoy artistic and cultural events and learn to express their creativity through art making. Our mission is to build a vibrant community by fostering common bonds, nurturing talent and creating venues for expressing and appreciating art and culture in Edina.
Centennial Lakes Park is home to a 10-acre lake that is groomed daily during the winter for ice skating. Spread out over three main ponds connected by narrow, meandering canals, the rink gives skaters a unique skating experience.

For the convenience of park visitors, Centennial Lakes rents figure and hockey skates for children and adults.
