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.

We moved to Woodbury, Minnesota about three years ago. We love all of the walking paths, which connects all of the little lakes! Everyone is friendly and there is a nice mix of all ages and family sizes here. Although, diversity is low as this is mainly white families, and not many options for ethnic grocery shopping.
