Prospect Park








In 2000, Prospect Park had 6,326 residents, a 24 percent increase from 1989. The neighborhood also grew slightly during the decade between 1980 and 1990.

Population growth in 2000 can be largely attributed to a doubling of the young adult population. The neighborhood's proximity to the University of Minnesota makes it an attractive place for student housing. The population grew in almost every age category in 1990. There were population losses, however, in all but two categories in 2000.

*Hispanics could be of any race

The population of Prospect Park is largely white, and it was one of the few neighborhoods in the city where this group's numbers grew. The neighborhood also has steadily diversified over the past 20 years. The number of Asians in the neighborhood more than tripled since 1980. Some racial groups, notably whites, blacks and American Indians, declined in numbers between 1980 and 1990. But with the exception of American Indians, those groups rebounded by 2000. Also, the Hispanic population increased by more than 100 percent in the 20-year period. In 2000, the population was 75 percent white, 10 percent Asian, and 8 percent black.
