About Victoria

About Victoria

Nestled along the southwest edge of Lake Minnetonka, Victoria boasts a growing community of over 10,000 residents.

Victoria, Minnesota retains our renowned small-town charm on the suburban-rural edge of the Twin Cities metro area while focusing on preserving our natural amenities as the City of Lakes and Parks. We have strong roots echoing from our rural past as we grow into a lifelong community for all.

With a nickname like City of Lakes and Parks, we strive to conserve and care for our natural surroundings with an understanding that decisions made today make an impact on tomorrow. We are the caretaker of 12 lakes, 32 active and passive parks, and more than 400 acres of reserved land.

The central business district of Victoria sits along Stieger Lake — connecting our community to the beauty of its natural areas. Throughout the year, the community comes together at Bayfront Park along the lake to spend time together during nights full of music, laughs, and a few classic cars.

Over the last 10 years, the community has grown over 40%. It has steadily become a sought-after home for both young families and those who are enjoying their second act due to Victoria's easy access to parks, trails, and a walkable downtown.
