I have loved living in Eden Prairie. It has a very relaxing but lively feeling and the people and companies are awesome! Eden Prairie has a lot to offer. Since I am a high school student, I have had the opportunity to see some of the unique options that students get around the city. It's a great place to grow up!

Eden Prairie is a very diverse community with plenty of opportunities for all. There is access to a plethora of stores, dining, etc. It's a wonderful community!
The community you feel here is amazing. It's a big place, but getting involved in activities and finding smaller communities leads to connections! The mall is big but you almost always see someone you know. There is an abundance of parks, and city services.
