Top 5 Reasons to Live in Chaska, MN

  • Stay Connected! The recent construction of Highway 212 (a multi-lane freeway) into Chaska means this suburb now has a direct link into the heart of Minneapolis and St. Paul. And while staying physically connected is great, being virtually connected is even better. For more than a decade, Chaska has made low-cost, high-speed, wireless Internet service available everywhere in the city.
  • Smart Design! Chaska is home to the Jonathan New Design community, a homeowner's association founded in the 1960s that was a pioneer in planned townships. Jonathon was the first location to benefit from Title IV of the Housing and Urban Development Act in the form of guaranteed financial assistance, and Jonathan remains the largest homeowner's association in Minnesota. Chaska has continued to be on the cutting edge of city development into the 21st century with its plans to create a 600 acre residential smart-growth development from the remnants of Chaska Township, which was annexed in 2005.
  • Great Golf! While Minnesota may be most well known for its wild winters, Chaska is known for its world-class golf. The Chaska Town Course is considered one of the best courses in the twin cities and has been named the course of the year by the Minnesota Golf Association. It has also been recognized by Golf Digest. Looking for a short game? Check out Par 30. And if you're really serious, become a member of the Hazeltine National Golf Club, a premier course that has hosted the U.S. Open twice, as well as other major championships.
  • Outstanding Outdoors! There's more than just golf to keep you busy outdoors in Chaska, though. For casual family fun, check out Fireman's Park, which boasts a classic playground, picnic pavilions, and a swimming beach with lifeguards. To really get in touch with nature, head to the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. The arboretum has over 1000 acres of specialty gardens and displays, as well as a sculpture garden and restaurant.
  • Small Town Feel, Big City Growth! Go back in time with Memorial Day ceremonies at the city's pavilion, a good old fashioned town celebration each summer when its time for River City Days, and other simple pleasures such as swimming and ice skating at the city's state-of-the-art community recreation center. Whether you're looking to buy, rent, or rent to own, Chaska offers all the amenities of being close to the Twin Cities, (including rising property values that are increasing an average of 3% annually!), without losing its small town charm.
