It is a perfect city for families. The schools rank 9/10 some even 10/10 and with the ever growing population, Woodbury has all of the convenient shopping centers that are needed! We have whole foods, Kowalskis markets, lunds and byrleys and cub foods, we also have a walmart, costco, sam's club and super target conviently located for all woodbury residents. Numerous of workout facilities including lifetime fitness, anytime fitness, LA fitness and the YMCA. We have a library and indoor park the kids on those cold and dreary days! Woodbury is the new up and coming city! I have lived there for 20+ years and it is only getting better with all of the new developments.

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.
