Snowshoe Magazine
There is a new small park along the Minnesota River valley on the south side of Eden Prairie called Richard T Anderson Park, named after a former Eden Prairie City Councilman who cared deeply about the environment. Eden Prairie has developed very rapidly over the past 20 years, from a semi-rural area of 20,000 with many active farms and horse ranches to a full-fledged suburb of 60,000 residents. In part, because of Mr. Anderson, Eden Prairie currently has 28 parks.
