- Suburb of Minneapolis, MN
Rating 3.95 out of 5 64 reviews
I have lived in Champlin for 12 years, and most of my experiences here have been delightful. My single-family home neighborhood has been neat, welcoming, and family-friendly. Most of the neighbors help bag leaves from the towering oak trees in fall, and one house would have a Christmas party each December for the neighborhood pre-pandemic. The city is also building affordable living complexes on the Mississippi River. Most Champlin neighborhoods are very close to this River or Elm Creek Park Reserve. Here, I have enjoyed swimming, boating, biking, walking, and skiing less than 5 miles from my house. I attend Champlin Park High School, where I feel that I am safe, am supported by counselors and teachers, can challenge myself with college classes, and can try new things in a variety of arts and athletics. Although frequent construction and a 30-minute commute to downtown Minneapolis are detractors, I still recommend this city to anyone looking for a family-friendly environment.
my experience with champlin was very good. they had lots of businesses to go to. the road work was always done fast and when a project was started it was finished as fast as it could be done. the schools were good, people were friendly in my neighborhood, many options for food and healthy eating.
A clean, quiet, peaceful city. There isn't a lot to do, but that means we spend a lot of quality time with family and friends, just hanging out and talking. Safe for going for a walk or a drive at any time. You'll always see people taking bike rides with their family or walking their dogs. Parks are clean and well-loved, and there's always room when you go. Overall, life is laid-back and very free.
I have lived here most of my life with my parents, brother, and two dogs. Champlin is such a wonderful community to live in because of the walking trails, community focused businesses, and pet friendly areas.
Champlin was a great place to grow up! My family has lived here for almost 18 years and have loved every minute of it! Champlin has been a city that is very welcoming to everyone and the community is very friendly. I would recommend Champlin to anyone who is looking for a nice city to live in.
Very friendly community. Nice neighborhoods with kind people. It is a very tight-knit and connected group of people.
I have lived in Champlin for about 6 months, but I have lived in other Minnesota suburbs for my entire life. Champlin is one of my favorites. It is not too crowded, and has a good amount of parks. I can't really comment on the school districts as I don't have children. Everyone we have met here has been very nice and it is also a very pet-friendly area.
I live in champlin it’s nice and quite good place to live and raise kids good schools both early childhood learning centers pre k and high schools
Nice, quiet, friendly, clean place to live. It feels like home. Close schools, daycares, restuarants and doctors offices. Walking trails and parks are nice. Close gas stations and grocery stores and stores of convenience.
I love the sense of community that the city of Champlin has. I have grown up here and I always feel as though I can ask anyone for help if I need it. I feel extremely safe here as well. One thing I would change about Champlin though is all the road construction. I think they should have planned it out better so it was not all happening at one time, making commutes much longer.
I have lived here my entire life, that being said I obviously love it. There is a clear divide between what my family calls the PWC or Prestigious West Champlin and the 'East Siders'. I live on the east side which is the poorer side of the town. The PWC I do not like for obvious reasons like the get all their roads plowed first and they have street lights. It is the nicer and more expensive side of town, I would not give up my time on the East side for anything though haha.
I always feel pretty safe around the community. The parks are clean and the people are friendly. The only downside is that it is a large city with families young and old so there are not a lot of activities or events that cater to everyone.
I have grown up here, know the area very well. It is very family friendly, everything you need is nearby.
I have lived here my whole life. Champlin is a wonderful little town with lots to do and places to see. If you are are looking to find work here it is also very easy as jobs are always looking to hire new people.
I have lived my whole life in this city. I was born just a few cities over, went to elementary, middle, and high school here. It's been a great place to live and grow up. The majority of the people in this area are families; spanning from newly developing to empty nesters. The public schools nearby were the reasons as to why my family had moved here. The elementary schools is the perfect place to start your kids off in school, and the high schools have paved the way for me to do what I dream of in college and as a career.
Champlin has been my first home as an adult. My husband and I purchased our first home here and it has been wonderful! Very friendly, with easy access to all parts of the twin cities area, but still being out of the major hustle and bustle. The outdoor activities available at Elm Creek Park Reserve are Phenomenal, for all season.
Champlin is a perfect location. Just 15 minutes away from anywhere you could want to be. It has many restaurant options and is very close to other towns with more options. Full of good people and fun activities!
