Kutzky Park has been around for awhile
Rochester Lourdes has been practicing football at Kutzky Park for over 40 years.
This is the final week of practice at Kutzky for Lourdes, which will use a new practice facility at the new high school located located in northwest Rochester.
The Eagles are preparing for Saturday's Class AAA Prep Bowl against Blue Earth Area (1 p.m. kickoff) at the Metrodome.
August W. Kutzky was a well-known early settler of Rochester. In 1898, he built one of the first houses in what would become Kutzky’s Park on West Center Street.
Kutzky is bordered by Civic Center Drive to the north, West Sixth Ave. to the east, Second St. S.W. to the south, and West 11th Ave. to the west.
There are 789 residential properties in the neighborhood. Approximately one-third of the properties are multi-family residences, but two-thirds of the neighborhood’s population lives in multi-family residences.
The Kutzky neighborhood includes the Canadian Honker restaurant and Caribou Coffee on Second St. across from St. Marys, Barlow Plaza and Miracle Mile businesses.
Kutzky Park includes playground equipment, basketball courts, picnic areas and a nearby bike trail.
