When the snow begins to fall, the rolling hills of Powderhorn Park become a well-used tobogganing area, and skaters take to the only outdoor speed skating track in the Twin Cities. At the heart of Powderhorn's diverse community is this lovely park, a one-square-mile reserve of hilly woods and wildflower covered hills. There is a small lake that is home to egrets and great blue herons-a welcome expanse amid its urban surroundings. It's also the setting for May Day, Powderhorn Festival of the Arts, Shakespeare in the Park, July 4th fireworks and Friday night concerts.
The park sits in marked contrast to some of the neighborhoods around it which are economically depressed rental areas with high levels of unemployment, crime, poverty and substandard housing. They include Central, Corcoran, Bryant and Bancroft, which span the distance between l-35W and Cedar Avenue to 42nd Street.
The exception to the area's general shabbiness is the Powderhorn Park neighborhood located between Chicago and Cedar Avenue, from Lake Street to 38th. Centrally located, with easy access to downtown, property values in this neighborhood are increasing, and many Powderhorn Park houses are getting a facelift. In fact, the neighborhood is hosting a national design competition called Little/LOTS to get architects to design houses for the narrow (40-foot) lots prevalent in this twelve by eight-block neighborhood. One-third of the housing units here are duplexes.
