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.

Eden Prairie is the perfect town for young families to raise their kids in. The schools are incredible here, and it is a very safe town. However, being a teenager it can be hard to find fun things to at night. Luckily, we're fairly close to the Twin Cities where there is plenty to do and see!
Eden Prairie has a nice community. Many churches in the area do outreach to provide a warm place to live. The police are very on top of things and keep people updated via newsletters and Facebook page. Eden Prairie is full of trees and has many parks and trails to visit. Almost every neighborhood has stores or activities in walking distance. Eden Prairie is very family friendly with many services held by the community center year round. The biggest downside, though, of Eden Prairie is the traffic on the freeways such as 494 and 169.
