Lakeville Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Minnesota
Home to Lake Marion, Orchard Lake, Crystal Lake, and Lac Lavon, Lakeville is ideally situated a mere 20 miles south of the Twin Cities. Dakota County's Lakeville is as much a progressive, illustrious community as it is a pretty, pleasant suburb. The city has experienced tremendous growth in recent years and doubled its population in the last decade. Lakeville today is home to approximately 56,000 residents – a number that is only expected to grow.
The community's students are served by three different school districts – 192, 194 and 196 – and consistently score above average on national assessment exams. Best capturing the forward-looking spirit of Lakeville is the "Pan-O-Prog." An annual summertime ritual that began in 1967, the Pan-O-Prog festival celebrates the town's success with a bonanza of parades, family-oriented events and food.
Lakeville's recreational atmosphere is kept alive year-round by the 50-plus neighborhood parks that span some 1,100 acres in the city. Offering a tempting blend of athletics, picnicking facilities, swimming and fishing beaches, bicycle and equestrian paths, skiing and hiking trails, ice-skating rinks and conservation areas, Lakeville's Parks and Recreation Department offers fitness and fun to all.
Lakeville's real estate market is made up of single-family homes, townhouses and condominiums, with newer properties and developments blending seamlessly with well-established neighborhoods.
