Panoway on Wayzata Bay
Shared experiences bring people closer together.
For generations, the Wayzata lakefront has provided unique and cherished memories to people from across the state. Now, Panoway on Wayzata Bay is working to make sure this unique asset will continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
Phase One of Panoway is complete, including the development of the new Plaza Park at Lake Street and Broadway Avenue, improvements to Broadway Plaza, and critical improvements to roads, sidewalks and city utilities.
Future Panoway projects will continue to ensure that Wayzata’s three-thousand feet of open shoreline along Lake Minnetonka remains one of the crowned jewels of this state. The plans include:
Improving the lakeside ecosystem by reintroducing native plant life, restoring habitats, and providing hands-on educational opportunities for kids to learn about science and nature.
Providing greater public access to Lake Minnetonka and creating a living classroom by adding a lakeside boardwalk along the downtown lakeshore, making the area more pedestrian friendly and enhancing the ability of visitors to connect with the waterfront.
Preserving Wayzata’s history by renovating and restoring the historic Section Foreman House and improving access to the Wayzata Depot. Together, these buildings will create unique educational opportunities to learn about Wayzata’s past.
Additional benefits of Panoway projects also include:
Promoting art and urban greenspace by creating open, natural spaces where residents can gather, reflect and recharge, and working with local artists to commission work for the community to enjoy.
Keeping downtown commerce vibrant by attracting residents and guests to visit Wayzata’s premier shops, restaurants, cafes, and gathering spots.
