The Kutzky Park neighborhood is located in the heart of Rochester, Minnesota, a couple blocks west of the Mayo Clinic. It is roughly bounded by Civic Center Drive to the north, 6th Avenue NW to the east, South 2nd Street to the south and 16th Ave NW to the west. Our neighborhood is just off Highway 52, behind Miracle Mile Shopping Center and is accessible from the 2nd St SW or Civic Center Drive exits.
Kutzky Park is distinguished by its beautiful older homes in an incredible diversity of architectural styles, including Victorian, Bungalow, Four Square, Craftsman, Cape Cod and Colonial. In fact, Kutzky Park has the distinction of having the oldest framed structure in Rochester – a private home built in 1856. That’s pre-Civil war and prior to Minnesota statehood!
The scenic Kutzky Park runs along Cascade Creek on the northern side of the neighborhood, has plenty of open green space, baseball and picnic facilities, and connects to Rochester’s extensive and ever-expanding bikepath system. The neighborhood is surrounded by countless employment, shopping, dining and recreational opportunities. Mayo Clinic and downtown Rochester are only a couple of blocks to the east, Miracle Mile Shopping Center is on the western edge, Barlow Plaza with HyVee and other businesses are north and, to the south, St. Marys Hospital and Canadian Honker Restaurant.
