Parkwood Knolls Continued:

The first Parkwood Knolls addition was platted by Carl Hansen and construction of houses began in 1947. Hansen built many of the fine homes in Country Club before purchasing about 600 acres from three farms and beginning development of the property around the intersection of two of the first roads he laid out: Parkwood Road and Knoll Drive. The lots in the first Parkwood Knolls addition ranged from about two-thirds of an acre to more than two acres. The lots were irregular and the streets followed the contour of the land, a marked contrast to Country Club and the lake district of Minneapolis here Hansen had made his mark as a builder.

The only parts of Parkwood Knolls not developed by Hansen were the older sections of the neighborhood in the northeast, near Mirror Lake and Fox Meadows along both sides of Schaefer Road, and the areas along the northern and western boundaries of the neighborhood. Some of the largest and most expensive parcels of residential property – and most luxurious homes – in Edina are located along Schaefer Road. Most parts of Parkwood Knolls not developed by Hansen were developed only a few lots at a time. Parkwood Knolls is the largest neighborhood in Edina, both by population and physical size.

As with most neighborhoods around Edina's perimeter, higher density housing and commercial or industrial property fill the outer edges of Parkwood Knolls' borders.

Van Valkenburg Park: A Legacy of Leadership

The City of Edina owns extensive property on the western edge of the neighborhood in the Lincoln Drive Flood Plain of Nine Mile Creek. The major municipal amenity in the neighborhood is Van Valkenburg Park on the northern boundary of the neighborhood. The park has a total of 42 acres and includes Edina's first dog park. The park is named for Jim Van Valkenburg, mayor of Edina for seven years and city council member for 20 years. Van Valkenburg was also one of the founders of the Edina Community Foundation, which encourages philanthropy.

Van Valkenburg Park is located where one of the earliest subdivisions in Edina was platted. The 1898 plat map of Hennepin County shows the Garland Park Addition to West Minneapolis where Van Valkenburg Park is now. A portion of today's park was also owned by a familiar name in Minnesota.

The 1898 plat map also shows that John S. Pillsbury, Minnesota's Governor 1876-1882, owned the 78 acres of land from Garland Park addition to the western boundary of Edina. Pillsbury lived in southeast Minneapolis near the University of Minnesota, but owned land throughout the Minneapolis area. He was a shrewd land speculator in addition to operating a very successful hardware store, so he must have foreseen the tremendous growth that would occur one day in the western suburbs. John also played an important role in the flour milling company founded by his nephew, Charles. John Pillsbury was one of the first park commissioners when the Minneapolis park board was created in 1883 and he was a leading promoter and a regent of the University of Minnesota. Perhaps it is fitting that John Pillsbury and Jim Van Valkenburg, two men who believed so strongly in public service, are linked through that parkland.

Van Valkenburg Park: A Legacy of Landscape

Van Valkenburg Park is considered a great example of oak savanna, one of the rarest natural ecosystems in Minnesota and worthy of preservation. In a report to the Edina Energy and Environment Commission in June 2013, Van Valkenburg Park was put on a "high priority" list for removal of buckthorn and reclamation from that invasive species. Other parks that were reported to have high quality natural areas – great plant diversity and quality trees – and the greatest potential for reclamation from buckthorn were Arden, Normandale, Highlands, Garden, Melody Lake, Lake Cornelia, Krahl Hill and Braemar.
