Minnetrista is a rural community located on the western bays of Lake Minnetonka and in southwestern Hennepin County. With an area of 32 square miles, the city consists of emerging suburban development, diversified rural, and agricultural land uses. Over the last ten years, the city's population has increased by nearly 10% and is now nearly 8,500. Continued and controlled residential growth is projected, however, preserving the rural character is important to the community.
Four school districts serve Minnetrista, including Westonka Public Schools, Delano Public Schools, Waconia Public Schools and Watertown-Mayer Public Schools. Annual events include National Night Out, Trista Days, State of the City Address, City Bus Tour, and a Holiday Tree Lighting event.
