The Sorensen neighbors group was formed in 1999. Each year, they host a beer, wine and cheese fundraiser for STEP, as well as a fall social at Webster Park. The group also mails out a neighborhood newsletter twice a year, in the spring and fall. The neighborhood organizes the community garden at Webster Park.

What is the difference between community and neighborhood sidewalks?
are located on streets that are directly adjacent to community or area destinations, such as the library, schools, retail areas, parks, regional trails, transit nodes and places of worship. Most of these sidewalks are located along roadways that have high traffic volumes.
Neighborhood sidewalks are all other sidewalks in the city. They provide accessibility for pedestrians within the immediate area and feed into the community sidewalk system. These sidewalks are generally located on lower volume roads.
What's the Adopt-a-Park or Garden Program?
We hope you’ll consider adopting a park or garden near you! Monitor one as a family, community group, neighborhood, church or business. It’s a great way to get outdoors and take pride in the community you live in. We just ask that you visit the park twice a month through September to pick up litter and check for damage. (Assignments can be arranged around summer vacation schedules.) For more information, contact Volunteer Coordinator Laura Smith at 952.928.2847 or

What are the requirements for garage sales in St. Louis Park?
Residents may conduct two garage sales per year, each lasting a maximum of 72 consecutive hours. Please do not post signs on utility poles, traffic signs or public right-of-ways, such as curbside areas of lawns. Garage sale signs should be removed as soon as the sale is over. Please consider donating unsold household items to a charity, such as the Salvation Army, rather than throwing them in the garbage.
