   Minnetonka 'Night to Unite' is held every year on the 1st Tuesday in  August.

After a year's hiatus because of Covid it was a fun gathering for all ages as two Minnetonka Fire trucks joined us. Night to Unite is held every year to promote community safety, usually at Lakeview Circle.
Volunteers bring potluck food too. Here are some photos.

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.
