Kenny

Kenny

Welcome to Kenny

Mainly a residential city, the Kenny neighborhood, park, and school were named after Sister Elizabeth Kenny, an Australian nurse who developed the Kenny Method for treating Polio. She was the first to suggest a moving treatment for those with Polio. Instead of resting, she thought that they should still retain their exercise, and therefore was the uncredited woman for inventing physical therapy. The Kenny Neighborhood has a population of about 3,500. Everything in Kenny is close, making it advantageous to walk or bike around the area. The neighborhood is also very modern and has a wide range of businesses, schools, and of course, the hidden gem: Grass Lake. Whether you’re looking for an intimate area or larger houses built in the 1940s, Kenny could be the right fit for you.
Find more information at the neighborhood’s web page:
Kenny Neighborhood

Then and Now:

In the 1950s, there was a large section of field owned by the Bachman Family. The family then switched their plant nursery location to another city, and thus, the field became what’s known today as Kenny Park. Not only does Kenny have Grass Lake and Kenny Park, it also features some of the largest homes in the Southwest area, having been constructed in the 1930s-50s. Most of the houses are Bungalow style, but there are also plenty of 2 story homes made of brick, stucco, and or metal.

Boundaries:

54th Street to the North, Lyndale Avenue to the East, Highway 62 to the South, and the alley between Knox and Logan Avenues to the West.

Bordering Neighborhoods:

Lynnhurst, Armatage, Windom, Tangletown, Fulton, and Richfield.

Parks:

Kenny Park
Grass Lake
Although Kenny only has one park, Kenny Park, it is generously spacious (with 9.23 acres of land) and entertainment-filled.
Kenny Park (1328 W 58th St 612-370-4901), named after Sister Elizabeth Kenny as well. The park itself offers baseball, soccer, and softball fields; basketball and tennis courts; an ice skating rink, picnic area, play ground, hockey rink, and a wading pool.
Grass Lake isn’t officially a park, but it’s still a great place to get some exercise. Bike or walk around the lake and enjoy tons of trees and peaceful nature scenery.

Restaurants:

There aren’t any restaurants located directly inside of Kenny, however, up Penn Street (in Lynnhurst), there are a few options for diners.

Shopping:

Unfortunately, Kenny doesn’t have any places to shop.

Night Life:

Since Kenny is a smaller, closely-knit, and nature based neighborhood, there aren’t any places to hang out at night. Again, if you head into Windom or Lynnhurst, there are more options.

Community Arts & Music:

Community Arts & Music:
Kenny doesn't have very many official places for art, but the neighborhood does try to organize gardening, festivals, and get togethers. Find more information on their website: Kenny Neighborhood.

In Kenny, bus lines fall to the 6 on France Ave, the 46 and 146 running on 50th Street, and the 6 also on Xerxes Ave . Busses are a great way to build community and save gas through carpool, with a fare of $2.25 in rush hour and $1.25 during normal hours.
