You’ve found a neighborhood as unique as The Eloise’s namesake, the oldest public wildflower garden in the United States, The Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary. Walking distance from the 15-acre wildflower garden sits a new neighborhood called Wirth on the Woods, home to The Eloise and three additional mixed-age housing communities currently in development adjacent to the 759-acre Theodore Wirth Regional Park to the West. And to the East? The charming Bryn Mawr neighborhood and downtown Minneapolis await.
