About the Community Garden

The Community Garden is tucked behind Edina Fire Station 2 off York Avenue South. Easiest access by vehicle is by entering the Southdale YMCA parking lot, 7355 York Ave. S. It also can be accessed from the Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail.

Constructed in the spring of 2013, the 55-plot garden is a popular spot for growing flowers or vegetables. It was extensively remodeled in 2020 after a construction project on pipes that run underneath it.
