I love Lino Lakes! It's an outer-ring suburb that has the tightknit community of a small town, the activity opportunities of a suburban town, and the potential for job opportunities both within city limits and in the Cities. We are a thriving community who strives to be our best selves. My favorite community events are the annual corn roast, the Centennial Lakes Little League and Fastpitch Associations, and our local public school, Centennial High School, band concerts.

Great neighborhoods and school systems. Plenty of parks and trails to enjoy nearby. Close to many good shops, stores and restaurants. Also, close to St. Paul and Minneapolis- reasonable drive to downtown events. Very friendly and family oriented neighbors!
I like Lino Lakes because it's so small and everyone seems to know each other. It is also easy to get to other people's houses because of the long biking trail connecting both sides of Lino Lakes. The city planning, though is not the best. We are getting another strip mall across from a strip mall which doesn't make sense.
