Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Association BMNA.org
Bryn Mawr is the northwestern anchor to the Minneapolis' beautiful chain of lakes, yet it is just minutes from shopping and business centers; a number of important historic sites; a wide variety of cultural and entertainment venues; two major sports facilities; and several colleges and universities. A diversity of building styles reflects Bryn Mawr's history, from Victorian to tudors, colonials, bungalows, ramblers, and contemporaries.
Bryn Mawr is a stable and desirable neighborhood, with a low crime rate and a percentage of active voters that exceeds that of both Minneapolis and Ward 7 by several points. Its residents have moderately high levels of education and income. Bryn Mawr residents are also fortunate to have an elementary school, Bryn Mawr Community School, and a middle school, Anwatin International Baccalaureate Middle School and Spanish Dual Immersion, located right in the neighborhood.
The community features a small but thriving restaurant and retail scene with Spark, Cuppa Java and Fast Freddies. The Neighborhood organization publishes the Bryn Mawr Bugle newspaper and sponsors a number of neighborhood activities and celebrations.
