As the name suggests, Lakeville has two large lakes within its borders: Lake Marion and Orchard Lake. The two largest of these are Lake Marion or Orchard Lake, which is heavily used for recreation such as fishing, boating and swimming.
From Lakeville to Savage, the MN-S subdivision belonged to the Canadian Pacific Railway and has been out of service since the 1990s. Before it was abandoned in the 1970s, it served various industries and passed through the center of Lakeville. Later in the 20th century, the reopening took place and it served directly as the terminus of the Minnesota Central Railway's North-South Line, an important rail line.
The town is served by three different school districts, whose boundaries are defined by boundaries, because the municipality is largely agricultural. Today, parts of northern and eastern Lakeville are part of the St. Louis County school district and the Minnesota State University school system.
The population is distributed throughout the city, with 56.0% of the population having children under 18 living with them, 73.6% of them married couples living together, 7.5% having a housekeeper with a husband and 15.3% having no family. About 2.8% were below the poverty line, including 1.4% without family income and 2% without, the lowest of any city in the state, according to the US Census Bureau.
There are 19,456 housing units in the city, of which 13,799 are single-family homes, 1,826 are multifamily homes and 6,564 are single-family homes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

In 2014, the majority of our population aged 25 and over said they had a university degree, compared with 46. 3% of the same population said they had a bachelor's degree.
At the 2000 census, 15,158 families lived in the city, and at the 2010 census, 17,826 families, or 1.5 percent of the total population of Lakeville, lived there. The high proportion of Scandinavians is due to the fact that the early settlers were farmers, mostly in rural areas. At the 2000 census, the majority of families with at least one child under 5 were born in Minnesota, with an average family size of 4.6 children.
In 1855, a group of farmers decided to plant a lake called Prairie Lake along a road formerly used by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. North Creek begins its main tributary, the Vermillion, and flows through Lakeville until it meets Vermillion near downtown Farmington, east of Lakeville. The upper water is the Mississippi, where it flows into the Wisconsin border, then flows south through the city and empties into Lake County, Wisconsin, about 30 miles northeast.
It is named after the late US Corps of Engineers Captain James Miller, who retired in 2015 after 22 years of service. Miller was also the first accredited manager of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR).
Although development did not start immediately after the war, agriculture continued to sustain itself by adding the Lakeville Farm Bureau and establishing a number of new businesses. In addition to his involvement in the league, Miller was a member of the board of directors of the Minnesota League of Conservation Voters and a member of the board of directors. Miller joined the city of Seeville in the mid-1960s as its first director of infrastructure development, which included balancing infrastructure and development with new residential and business development. He stressed the importance of maintaining and developing professional relationships that benefit the community.
