About the Community of Bloomington

Bloomington redefined itself in 1992 when it opened The Mall of America, the largest indoor shopping center in the nation. Bloomington's proximity to Minneapolis and the Twin Cities' airport has made this suburb grow to become the third largest city in Minnesota. Hospitality has become the number one industry in the area, and the city's first light-rail stretches from Downtown Minneapolis to the heart of Bloomington. One-third of the city is designated as parkland and recreation space, and Bloomington is also home to one of only four urban wildlife refuges in the country. Add that on to the three golf courses, 108 tennis courts, a 50-acre Dred Scott Playfield, and 123 parks that call Bloomington home, and you've found a great place to live.
