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. 

Help us create a more connected, clean and welcoming Lakeshore in Wayzata.

Phase One of Panoway was completed in 2020. The new Plaza Park on Lake Street between Broadway and Walker Avenues together with critical improvements to roads, sidewalks and city utilities have greatly improved our lakeside waterfront. It creates open, natural spaces where residents can gather, reflect and recharge overlooking one of the most iconic views of Lake Minnetonka for the community to enjoy.

Phase Two was completed in 2024. The Lakewalk and new municipal docks at Broadway and the Depot provide greater public access to Lake Minnetonka by adding an offshore pedestrian walkway along the waterfront together with the Lake Street Plaza of Phase One making the area more pedestrian friendly and enhancing the ability of visitors to connect with the waterfront.

These initial features are keeping downtown commerce vibrant by attracting residents and guests to visit Wayzata’s premier shops, restaurants, cafes and gathering spots.

Phase Three is on the horizon and will continue to ensure that Wayzata’s 1600 feet feet of 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 constructing an underwater “wave break” to protect the restored lakeshore.

Preserving Wayzata’s history by renovating and restoring the historic Section Foreman House and improving access to the Wayzata Depot. Together, these buildings will provide hands-on educational opportunities for all ages to learn about science and nature and will create unique educational opportunities to learn about Wayzata’s past.
