Although just two-miles from downtown, our residential neighborhoods have a more suburban feel—with large lots, modern housing stock, and in the southern neighborhoods (Highwood Hills and Battle Creek), spectacular views from the bluffs of the river, downtown, and Pigs Eye Lake - home to a large heron rookery.
The neighborhood has easy access to I-94, has its own transit hub with frequent bus service, and is located near 3M headquarters. SunRay Center and Suburban Avenue are the neighborhood’s retail areas and they are home to franchise and local restaurants, grocery stores, major retailers, fitness centers and more.
Our parks have programs for elders and young people, hiking and biking trails along streams and bluffs, and opportunities for all seasons. We are home to magnet, neighborhood, public and private schools, and religious organizations interested in community involvement.
