We Like Windsor Green!

We moved to Windsor Green one month ago, and we already love it here!


This is our Top Ten list:  

  1. Our new friends and neighbors:  everyone has been friendly and inviting; neighbors have stopped by to say hello and welcome us to the ‘hood; some brought flowers and food!
  2. The lovely park-like setting: it’s a joy to sit on our front deck to enjoy the breeze, the birds, and lovely grounds with mature trees; our granddaughter has already met and played with new friends, and we can sit on the deck and watch them play.
  3. The walking trails:  over two miles of trails, right here in Windsor Green;  many people walk The Green every day.
  4. The swimming pools (2!):  a great place to meet neighbors and a place for grandchildren when they visit; one of the elder residents who is close to 90 swims laps every morning!  Swimming lessons for children and grandchildren) have been held at the pool for over 20 years!
  5. Accessibility, events and classes at Silverwood Park:  a part of the Three Rivers park system, Silverwood is a hidden gem, right off Silver Lake Road.
  6. Close to shopping and freeways:  quick access to 694, 35W & Hwy 36
  7. Close to Minneapolis and St Paul;  about 15 minutes to either downtown
  8. Women’s group:  Women Who Cook and Women Who Walk:  I joined this group the second week we lived here and instantly met 19 new friends!
  9. Men’s group:  Men Who Dine Out (on the nights their women are cooking!): John
    met new friends that same night
  10. The diversity:  families of all ages live here, making this a place that is both peaceful yet energetic; there’s always something happening, and the association keeps us well-informed and connected.
