Named after Lake Nokomis, the Nokomis community is home to eleven smaller neighborhoods, which include: Diamond Lake, Ericsson, Field, Hale, Keewaydin, Minnehaha, Morris Park, Northrup, Page, Regina and Wenonah.
The neighborhoods include tree-lined blocks with a variety of sizes and styles. Many local businesses are part of the community.
