I love Eden Prairie. The Schools are great, the athletics are great, and the people are great. It is a city that has lots of restaurants for parents to take their kids to. It also has an abundant of parks for family outings, casual hang outs, and to enjoy the outdoors. We also have a couple lakes around the area. What makes Eden Prairie especially great is the variety of activities like sports in the area for kids. From association to travel play in sports.
Eden Prairie is in the southwest suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota, about a 20-minute drive from the Twin Cities. It's a small city known for its great public schools, its many walking paths and parks, shopping centers, and restaurants.
There's a wonderful balance between mother nature and city life, and as a visitor or a resident you can escape into any one of the wooded public parks Eden Prairie has to offer.
Just a short drive further west on highway 5 (about a 5-10 minute drive) is Paisley Park, Prince's home and long-time recording studio. Our beloved neighbor passed on April 21, 2016.
