Mound Westonka

Welcome to Mound Westonka

A quaint hometown community on Lake Minnetonka

 

Mound is a charming village on the northwestern shores of Lake Minnetonka. Named for the ancient Native American burial mounds that dotted the landscape, Mound was a vacation destination for residents of the Twin Cities during the turn of the century and has become a hub for businesses and residents alike. Throughout the village’s development, Lake Minnetonka continues to be the heart of this community. Mound offers its residents numerous opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with access to Lake Minnetonka, a city beach, numerous parks and the Dakota Regional Trail.

 

Mound has many beautiful neighborhoods comprised of single-family homes, townhomes, new construction, and luxurious private properties. Mound’s lakeshore properties often enjoy their own private boat docks while residents with homes off the lake can take advantage of the groundbreaking municipal dock program.
