Welcome to Lakeville, Minnesota, a vibrant, charming community south of the Twin Cities and soon home to Estoria Lakeville, an 89-unit, member-owned cooperative for adults aged 62+. Residents of our dynamic community in Lakeville will enjoy private single-story homes personalized to suit their needs, plus a whole range of community amenities, including indoor and outdoor gathering areas, pickleball courts, garden plots, a pet park, walking paths, and more.

Estoria provides lots of onsite activities for adults 62+, but being located in Lakeville is an added bonus for our residents. Here are some of the great things to do in Lakeville that make life at Estoria Lakeville even better.

Outdoor Adventures

They don’t call it Lakeville for nothing. Beautiful Lake Marion is just minutes away with ample opportunities for boating, fishing, picnicking, or just enjoying the beauty of the lake at one of the lakeside parks. Community parks and golf courses dot the area for leisurely strolls or a day on the links.

Arts & Performances

The Lakeville Area Arts Center is a major draw for art lovers of all types. In addition to galleries featuring local artists, the center hosts painting and pottery classes. Prefer performance art? The onsite theater hosts several theater groups and regularly features plays and musical performances.

Shopping & Dining

As one of the fastest-growing communities in Minnesota, Lakeville is seeing an explosion of shopping and dining options. Head to Crossroads of Lakeville or Southfork Shopping Center for a variety of shops and restaurants all in one convenient area. The nearby Walmart Supercenter makes getting all of your essentials easy. Near downtown Lakeville, B-52 Burgers and Brew and Lakeville Brewing Company are local favorites. For a hearty Minnesota breakfast, you can’t do better than Buckboard, or go for a splurge dinner at Porterhouse Steak & Seafood. There’s something for all occasions and tastes in Lakeville.

Seasonal Festivals & Event

Lakeville’s Pan-O-Prog Festival is a highlight of the summertime, with fun events happening throughout the Fourth of July weekend, including live music, a pet show, and – of course – fireworks. The Lakeville Art Festival gears up in mid-September bringing artists from all over the country and featuring art demonstrations and live music, as well as arts and crafts for purchase. You won’t want to miss the Taste of Lakeville for great bites and drinks from local eateries.

There’s no possible way to be bored at Estoria Lakeville with all the events happening within our community and in the greater Lakeville area. Estoria is the ultimate destination for living the life of your choosing. Here, the possibilities are endless.
