Review Eden Prairie
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.
Eden Prairie is a great place to live. The schools are amazing and the opportunities they offer the kids there are great. They always push kids to do there best and offer many programs to kids who struggle in school or need improvement. They also offer a ton of different AP classes in all different subjects that encourage kids to excel and strive in their academics. Not to mention they offer a ton of sport and academic after school activities. But not only are the schools great in Eden Prairie, but the community is great as well. The town has many parks for people to get together and many of the neighborhoods have block parties, something that I looked forward to every year as a kid. The town also has a non profit program called the Prop Shop, that offers help to low income families. It's completely run off of donations from the people in Eden Prairie which shows that this is a town that supports each other. If I could spend the rest of my life living in Eden Prairie I would very happy. It's one of the most welcoming towns I've seen in my life that is full of opportunity and has a caring community. I know if I had a family here, my kids would always have a safe park to play at, opportunities in school, and be surrounded by amazing kind people. Eden Prairie is truly a great place to live.
