Search Here for Corcoran Real Estate and Homes »

The city of Corcoran, MN is located in Hennepin County just west of Maple Grove and Plymouth and is the epitome of Minneapolis outer ring suburbs. Although it is technically one more ring out of the suburbs, it is close enough to the city to shoot into downtown in half an hour or so via highway 55 or 394 or quickly accessed by nearby highways 94 and 494. And much of this land is, or used to be, farm land with sprawling grasslands and gently sloping hills and full of wide open spaces. Many of the single family homes will sit on some acreage or abut some lovely farm fields. Or some of the newer developments feature some amazing landscaping and abundant square footage. The city also features Corcoran condos and Corcoran townhomes.

In the 2010 census, Corcoran boasted 5,379 residents on 39.5 square miles of land. The city does not contain the Minnesota land characteristic of an abundance of lakes however, containing only .1 square mile of water. The city itself is named for Irishman Patrick Corcoran, the first merchant, schoolteacher and postmaster of the town, and was incorporated in 1948. If your MN home search has brought you to Corcoran, I think you’ll be pleased here.

In between looking for your new Corcoran home, consider checking out some of their amenities, like Corcoran’s beautiful memorial gardens with park, gazebo, and lovely walking trails around the areas wetlands. This place could be a great spot for a photo opportunity or some enjoyable wildlife watching. Or give the gift or memory; purchase one of their many memorial items from engraved bricks to engraved benches.

The City of Corcoran also has a civic center available for rental for resident events. They even offer a discount for Corcoran home residents. You can also visit their Corcoran Community Park, shelter area and ball fields, or rent a space at city hall. In the winter enjoy their seasonal ice rink and warming house open to the public. Or, if you’re a golfer hit the Shamrock Golf Course that calls Corcoran it’s home too. This city also host a wide array of family-oriented events from fire arm safety, drivers safety, to meals on wheels and food shelves; from energy assistance to Corcoran County Daze hosted by the NW area Jaycees.

All of this packed into one rural suburb, and Corcoran homes still offer quick access to the arts and entertainment of the Twin Cities downtown areas. Catch a play, musical or opera or consider Minneapolis’ fine dining for a more culinary adventure. Both downtowns are unique and different in their own special way: St. Paul boasts the capital and it’s Science Museum, History Museum and historic sites. Minneapolis, considered to be the more modern of the two, has stunning skyscrapers, the Walker, Old Mill Museum, and is hub to local artists and musicians. For a slice of Minnesota music history, give a visit to the world famous “1st Avenue” bar and live music venue.
