Lake Forest Real Estate & Homes

Some folks prefer their neighborhood to be, well, a neighborhood and not a plot of land carved out of the corner of a commercial district. If that sounds like you, welcome to Lake Forest, a St. Louis Park neighborhood that is nothing but residences.

You’ll find Lake Forest south of the railroad tracks, between France Avenue and Highway 101. The southern boundaries vary, depending on who you talk to. The City of St. Louis Park, however, places the southern border at Basswood Road in the east and the remainder at W. 26th St.


Outdoorsy types will enjoy spending time at Twin Lakes and its wetlands as well as Twin Lakes Park. The list of amenities at the park is long, but highlights include:

  • Baseball and softball field
  • Basketball courts
  • Golf course
  • Fishing
  • Horseshoe pits
  • Pickelball courts
  • Sand volleyball
  • Soccer field
  • Tennis courts

In the winter, Lake Forest residents use the park’s hockey and skating rinks.

Lake Forest has an active neighborhood association that sponsors events throughout the year. They also host a garden club and produce a newsletter to keep residents connected.

Homes in Lake Forest

The neighborhood’s developer was aiming for an area reminiscent of country estates, with large homesites, winding streets and no through-traffic. The original residents purchased their lots for $1,100.

Today, Lake Forest comprises almost 198 acres and contains mainly single-family homes. The average year built for a Lake Forest home is 1951, although the oldest home, located in the McNair Park subdivision, was built in 1925.

Speaking of subdivisions, you’ll find several within the Lake Forest neighborhood, dating back to the 1930s through the 1950s. These include Westridge, Highwood Tract, Forest Tract, Parklands, Parkwoods, McNair Park and Cedarwood.
