Eden Prairie is a magnificent place to live. The schools are spectacular! They provide students with additional help in subject they are struggling in and have numerous activities for students to participate in. The parks are amazing in Eden Prairie. They are well maintained and updated regualry. If I had the choice, I woudl one hundred percent choose to grow up in Eden Prairie. People are humble, caring, and overall very friendly.
I like that there is the center area of town which has almost anything you need for daily living. The mall is basically the downtown of this city and most of the other go to stores and restaurants are within walking distance too which makes biking and walking very easy. Eden Prairie is also well known for its excellent public school system as well as having many parks and outdoor activities available. I would like to see improvement on the cost of living- renting in this town is more than a mortgage most places. Overall an excellent place to call home except of course if you can tolerate the cold that comes with in each winter.
