About Eden Prairie

Eden Prairie

Eden Prairie is located in close proximity to the Minneapolis – St. Paul metro area providing a perfect balance of small town feel and big city amenities. The City received its name in the mid-1800s when it was considered a ‘garden spot’ in the newly developed Minnesota territory.
