The proud 52,000 residents of Apple Valley live conveniently equidistant between Minneapolis and St. Paul and within just five minutes of Mall of America.
Unlike most suburban cities, Apple Valley has commercial-free neighborhoods surrounding a “Core” commercial downtown Ring-Route with hundreds of stores and more than 60 restaurants.
Apple Valley has more than 50 parks with no neighborhood more than a brief walk away from one. Our “Family Aquatic Center” just completed the addition of two new waterslides (for a total of four) and added a wistful “Lazy River.” Our new Kelley Park’s free “Splash Pad” (sprinkler arcade) picnic-playground park attracts from the entire region.
With 24-hour medical centers, easy hospital access, our 24 ambulance paramedics, 72 firefighters and 51 police officers, Apple Valley is safe, secure and healthy.
