Richfield started as most Minnesota towns do—as a small farming community. Today, it sits directly south of Minneapolis, and the location is only a part of all that Richfield has to offer. It has over 450 acres of park area, including Augsburg Park, which hosts outdoor concerts every Thursday during the summer. One of Richfield’s best kept secrets is the Wood Lake Nature Center, with great paths for running, walking and cross-country skiing, offering boardwalks along marshy areas and pristine views.
Take advantage of the growing foodie population in Richfield, by checking out Lyn 65 Kitchen and Bar, owned by Ben Rients, a veteran of Minneapolis favorite Restaurant Alma. Aida is a local Mediterranean establishment with aromatic shawarma, and Andale Taqueria Y Mercado has become a staple for authentic Mexican food.
Richfield has one of the most convenient commutes into downtown and to other nearby suburbs, making it easy to experience all the Twin Cities has to offer while still having the amenities of suburban living. Townhomes, apartments and single-family homes make it possible for a variety of lifestyles to live in harmony in Richfield.
