Here are some photos from recent Minnetonka Nights Out. This year it will be on Tues. August 6th! Family gathering at Lakeview Circle to help prevent crime. Minnetonka Fire Trucks come for the kids to sit in! Take a bite out of crime!

The 2016 Sherwood Forest annual Night Out was well attended this year on Tuesday August 2nd. About 50 neighbors came with lots of children who rode their bikes in a parade to Lakeview Circle. There was a selection of delicious potluck food and some souvenirs provided by the Minnetonka Police and Fire Departments. Police Chief Jeff Sebenaler mingled with our neighbors and the firemen showed the children the equipment on their truck and let them sit in the driver's seat!

About

Established in 1959, the Sherwood Forest Association mission is to enhance the livability and community cohesiveness of the Sherwood Forest neighborhood, located in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The neighborhood is comprised of more than 265 homes within the Sherwood Forest, Timberline (Fox Hills) and Hilloway Park areas.

Project

We are currently compiling a history of Sherwood Forest. We have the history of the Sherwood Hills Road area presented by early resident Ron Vagemast in Sept 2013. And we want to combine it with the rest of Sherwood Forest's history and present it to the public at the Ridgedale Library some time in 2015. If you would like to help please contact us. More details are on our History page. 

Resources

We strive to provide resources for our neighbors which will help them communicate with each other and strengthen our ability to maintain a safe and beautiful neighborhood. And also so that our residents can learn more about their environment and history of our land, and what they can do to help.

Get Involved

In addition to our website, you now have two new ways to keep in touch with what is going on in our neighborhood or to share some news of your own! 

  • Facebook    We now have an official facebook page!  Search "Sherwood Forest Association" and like us to stay updated on upcoming events.

  • Twitter   Follow us on Twitter for neighborhood alerts @ForestNeighbors.

City Planning

On January 21st 2015 the City of Minnetonka held a meeting at the Ridgedale Library to discuss their Vision Plan with over one hundred neighbors. The Mayor and two council persons were there to answer questions about the plan with special concerns about the new 6 story high Highland Bank that was recently approved and the added traffic that it will bring.
There is more information in our Announcements here.

Latest Project

In May 2014 the whole Sherwood Forest neighborhood pulled together to donate the funds and rebuild the iconic Sherwood Forest Entrance sign.  It had broken apart from the cold of the previous winter after having stood there on Hopkins Crossroad since the 1950s. See Projects page.
