The Greater East Side of Saint Paul

The Greater East Side of St. Paul is bordered on the north by Larpenteur Avenue, on the west by Hazelwood Street and Johnson Parkway, to the south by Minnehaha Avenue, and on the east by McKnight Road.  The Greater East Side is actually made up of three neighborhoods. Hayden Heights, Hazel Park and Hillcrest are all part of this northeast St. Paul Minnesota neighborhood.

This middle class neighborhood boasts reasonable home prices that are affordable for families and single professionals while situated in a pleasant neighborhood.  The area's young trees and mid-century era of the homes give it a suburban feel. Most of the residents in the neighborhood are young families or retirees.

The homes in Greater East Side are mostly larger, single family units with a few multi-family unites scattered throughout the neighborhood.  The majority of the homes in the neighborhood were built after 1940. Most of the homes are Cape Cods and ramblers. That isn’t to say that all of the homes here are older, as there are several new construction homes being built along Beaver Lake.  

Community centers are the gatherings places of the neighborhood. Hayden Heights Community Center and Hazel Park Community Center offer family recreation areas including tennis courts and playgrounds. Trails surrounding Beaver Lake are biking, running and dog walking paths.

The East Side neighborhood is right at the edge of the city of St. Paul, sharing a border with the suburb of Maplewood. The close proximity makes shopping and dining in Maplewood convenient.  Additionally, there is potential work nearby!  The headquarters for 3M, Minnesota's largest employer, are on Interstate-94 and McKnight Road.
