Welcome to Orono

 
Orono is a friendly community bridging the gap between the fun-loving Lake Minnetonka lifestyle and the more rural feel of cities to the West. For Orono residents, it’s the best of both worlds to be able to enjoy the quiet neighborhoods and attractive landscapes while still being close to the action on Lake Minnetonka. A perk of living in Orono is the extensive trail system weaving throughout the city. Whether you want to enjoy a leisurely walk or hike, or intensive biking workout, the trails are a great way to get outside.
