This past week brought the fall equinox and the weekend ahead has us officially in the throngs of October. The season of change can be seen both in and outside our walls as we polish and finalize for the opening of our clubhouse, and as we prepare to welcome our first residents soon after! We hope you’ll connect with our team and stop in to see the exciting changes unfolding at Onyx.

In tandem with onsite developments, there’s change all around as the season of harvest swoops in with its crisp nights and vibrant colors. With it, Edina and surrounding communities come together, seizing each opportunity we have to enjoy one another and to celebrate the beauty of the outdoors before we’re experiencing them through thick, bundled layers. There’s no shortage of opportunity to get out and engaged, and whether you’re looking to enjoy a Brunch and Fall Colors Cruise on nearby Lake Minnetonka or to experience the sweet bite of fall at a neighboring apple orchard, you’ll find this and more not too far from home.

If the season spurs you to mix and mingle, it’s a quick trip north to break bread with family and friends. Mill City celebrates heritage and all things grain on Saturday with the return of its annual Bread Festival—inviting guests to sample the wares of renown, local bakers, to savor the sweet sounds of live music, and to enjoy art of all fashion. Think of it as your morning carb-load for a day of adventure and fun!

From there, consider a visit to Rummage—an all-weekend event where local and national vendors and artisans will join together for performances, craft beer, games, and more. If fall triggers your winter-lust and the need for downhill wind-lashings on your face, you can share the sentiment with fellow enthusiasts at the annual Fall Fair and Ski & Snowboard Swap, hosted by The Alps Chalet and beginning this Thursday, September 29th.

While Sunday’s prime for sticking close to home and enjoying a libation, matinee, or a stroll through Edina, we hope you’ll consider beginning your weekend in vibrant, fall fashion by venturing a bit further out and experiencing the wonders around us. You’ll appreciate the breath of fresh air and get a feel for the many faces of community we’re so fortunate to enjoy!

Vigorous Ventures

Get Out, Get Active

Sometimes feeling good comes from doing good and, no matter your age or ability level, there’s opportunity to put your best foot forward and to make strides for good cause this weekend. With prizes, refreshments, incomparable views, and worthy charities to benefit, consider starting your weekend by lending support for one of the many walks and runs taking place for our community, neighbors, and friends.

In autumn, don’t go to jewelers to see gold; go to the parks!

We’re immeasurably proud of our progress and excited to unveil our clubhouse on Thursday, September 22nd. From there, it’s a short push to the holiday season when we’ll welcome our first residents to Edina’s shining gem with amenities and high-end finishes unlike any others found in the city.

If you’re looking for an early opportunity to begin exploring our community, we suggest starting with the many parks, courses, and rinks that surround us. The workweek might be office-centric, but evenings and weekends are prime for getting out and for time spent in our beautiful surroundings.

Choice pick for us is Centennial Lakes Park’s 10 acres of water and 1.5 miles of paved pathways, where outdoor enthusiasts still have time to enjoy its many opportunities for fitness and fun before winter sets in. If you crave a leisurely stroll, bike ride, lawn bowling or paddle boating, you’ll find it there. Want to find gardens, arched bridges, or the perfect Adirondack for leisurely reading? You’ll find all of those, too. Make time Thursday for the Edina Farmers Market while it lasts—running through the end of month, and keep the park on your radar for its many seasonal events.

Discerning palates will also enjoy our convenient connectedness to some of the nation’s most sought after clubs and golf courses, including Braemar Golf Course, The Interlachen Country Club, and the Edina Country Club—ideal for fostering the neighborly togetherness that keeps our city close-knit.

When winter sets in, you can still enjoy the enclosed comforts of Edinborough Park and its track, multi-purpose spaces, and amphitheater—set to host the Somewhat Dixieland Band at 7:00 PM this Sunday, September 18.  And for those who embrace the cold of the season, Braemer Ice Rink invites the chill into its three sheets of ice that are as perfect for hockey as they are for a competitive or recreational skate.

There’s much to love about Edina, and no matter if you’re onsite or out exploring our community, you’ll discover a boundless range that will leave every outing adventurous and new!
