City of Edina
Situated immediately southwest of Minneapolis in Hennepin County, Edina has a population of 53,494. It is a first-ring suburb known for its shopping and dining, its parks and recreational facilities and the excellent quality of life for residents.
The City of Edina is offering residents one of 11 types of young trees to plant on their property as part of overall sustainability goals.
Edina hasn’t skimped on green space either. This town has 40 parks, and Centennial Lakes Park is a highlight with paddle boats and lawn bowling. Open in the summertime, the Edina Aquatic Center boasts pirate-themed rides and a surf simulator, and once the cold rolls in, 12 outdoor ice rinks are unveiled for the season.
All of these perks don’t come cheap though; the median home price here is well above average for Minneapolis. Luckily, there are plenty of good jobs in the area, ranging from retailers like Target and Best Buy to U.S. Bancorp (all headquartered nearby), and healthcare keeps many employed within the town’s limits.—Veronica Crews
