I love the fact that Woodbury is a city that is rapidly expanding and growing. Not only is this city growing but there is an immense sense of community. Whenever I go for walks or out in public everyone is very friendly and is kind to one another! There is so much diversity in food, clothing, parks, you name it! Woodbury has so much to offer and I feel honored to have lived here my entire life and watch this wonderful city come to how it is today.

Woodbury is a very safe place and has amazing schools! It's growing larger every year so the diversity is improving which is great as well! There aren't as many businesses and activities as there could be. This forces a lot of people to make the 20-30 minutes drive into the cities to find things to do. It would be great if Woodbury could add more things to do such as eateries, spas, play zones for children, playgrounds, etc.
Woodbury is an amazing city, and is the perfect family setting. The streets are quiet and safe, and the houses are beautiful with large yawns to play in. Also, the kind of relationships you make with your friends and neighbors are strong and last forever. Another thing that makes Woodbury special, is its numerous activities that people can take part in. This includes, Woodbury days, Bielenberg sports center, and Woodbury 10 theater. There are also many shopping centers and restaurant chains that are very prevalent in Woodbury. One thing I would change about Woodbury, is it's school systems. The schools are just average, and don't really compare to the schools in Wayzata or Edina. Of course the schools have their strengths, with their immense culture and inclusivity, but their sports and academics are lacking. In conclusion, I believe that Woodbury is a great city with beautiful houses, numerous activities, and a overall great family setting, but their school systems are average.
