Docks & Commons Program

The City of Mound operates a very unique program—the Mound Docks and Commons Program.  It is the largest municipally owned dock program in the state, permitting up to 637 boats annually on Lake Minnetonka.   Thanks go to the developers who platted Commons in those neighborhoods between the years 1906-1921. They created linear accessways, or Commons, on the shores as they platted the new subdivisions.  It was their desire to dedicate the shorelines of Mound, just as parks are dedicated for public use, so that all Mound residents could enjoy the use of the lake, not just those whose property faces (abutts) the lake.
