About St. Anthony

Unique Location

Welcome to the City of St. Anthony! The City is considered a "first-ring" suburb of Minneapolis and as such is part of the metropolitan area. St. Anthony is unique in that two-thirds of the city is located in Hennepin and one-third is located in Ramsey Counties. The dividing line is 37th Avenue.

St. Anthony is five miles northeast of down-town Minneapolis and eight miles northwest of downtown St. Paul. The St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses of the University of Minnesota are a 10 to 15 minute drive from St. Anthony. The City is easily accessible via I-35W, County Road D, Highway 88, Highway 280, I-94, Silver Lake Road and I-694 and Highway 10 via Silver Lake Road.

Despite its unique location, being conveniently situated to the downtown areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Village has been able to retain all of the advantages of a smaller community.


Our community's uniqueness can be attributed to beautiful Silver Lake, Francis A. Gross Public Golf Course, Silver Lake Village, parks, bike trails, a highly distinguished K-12 independent school district and its convenient proximity to the major metropolitan areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul.


The City is 2.35 square miles with 24.5 miles of City streets. Communities that border St. Anthony include Northeast Minneapolis to the south, Roseville to the east, Columbia Heights to the northwest and New Brighton to the northeast.
