DescriptionEden Prairie is just 20 minutes from both downtown Minneapolis and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. It also boasts Eden Prairie Center, 8251 Flying Cloud Dr., a large shopping mall anchored by JCPenney, Kohl's and Sears. Within the mall and in the surrounding plazas are restaurants catering to a variety of tastes and budgets.
The Minnesota River forms the city's southern boundary, and within the city limits are rolling hills, river bluffs and more than a thousand acres of parks. Nature trails and bike paths follow the shores of a number of lakes, and a portion of the Minnesota River Bluffs LRT Regional Trail runs along a former railroad bed from one side of Eden Prairie to the other.
