Editor’s Picks APPLE VALLEY ROSEMOUNT

Fun in Apple Valley extends past the zoo by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS MANAGING EDITOR

New or visiting town

If I had visitors who were coming to Apple Valley for one day or if I were introducing newcomers to the city, here’s where I would take them. Apple Valley is a significant regional destination. Dakota County residents were polled recently asking them what their favorite recreational activity is. The answer: Going to zoos. With the Minnesota Zoo in their backyard, local residents know the treasure they have close to home. A visit to the Minnesota Zoo is a must for visitors. The zoo maintains a spectacular facility, which recently earned a major upgrade with the addition of Russia’s Grizzly Coast exhibit. Aside from the zoo, Apple Valley is a shopping and restaurant magnet for the area. A major concentration of shops and eateries is at the junction of County Road 42 and Highway 77/Cedar Avenue. There one can find pretty much anything to buy from both independent retailers and big-box stores. The culinary delights range from fast food to some of

the most elegant sit-down restaurants in the area. Though it’s fairly small, Apple Valley packs a park punch with access to Lebanon Hills Regional Park run by Dakota County and the Johnny Cake Ridge Park operated jointly by the city of Apple Valley and School District 196. People can hike, walk, bike, ski, canoe, camp, play ball and much more at both sites. In the summer there’s the newly upgraded Apple Valley Aquatic Center and golf courses to explore, while the city-owned Valleywood Golf Course turns into a mecca for cross country skiers. For more information, go online at www. ci.apple-valley.mn.us.

Established residents

For those who have lived in Apple Valley for a long time, I’d encourage them to break out of their routines by checking out: • Some of the smaller, independently owned restaurants and shops. There are several waiting to be tried along County Road 42. • Disc golf is a popular sport in the summer at Alimagnet Park. For more

information, go online at www.ci.applevalley.mn.us. • Get a Minnesota Zoo membership. The membership rates are so cheap that going just a couple times a year will have it pay for itself. • If you haven’t been out for the evening at one of the bars or clubs in Apple Valley, then be prepared to party. Bars and clubs host bands, karaoke and other fun and games every night of the week. Check out Thisweek Newspapers Music Calendar in the print edition or go online at www.ThisweekLive.com. • Participate! Get involved in the local community by volunteering with one of the many local youth Parks and Recreation sports or school activities (www.ci.applevalley.mn.us or www. district196.org) or a special event like the annual Apple Valley Freedom Days or MidWinter Fest (www.ci.apple-valley.mn.us).

Rosemount appeals to visitors with its hometown feel by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS MANAGING EDITOR

New or visiting town

If I had visitors who were coming to Rosemount for one day or if I were introducing newcomers to the city, here’s where I would take them: A walk through Carroll’s Woods near

Rosemount High School, through Erickson and Central parks and then a stroll down Rosemount’s main drag to see the new library, a clip at my favorite barber shop, wander into the unique shops, and lunch at one of the restaurants. For a nightcap, downtown Rosemount is typically abuzz with activity at its bars with live music, karaoke, drink specials and pull tabs nearly every night.

Established residents

For those who have lived in Rosemount for a long time, I’d encourage them to break out of their routines by checking out: • Dakota Woods Dog Park, 16470 Blaine Ave., which is actually in Coates and run by Dakota County. You will need a $5 per day permit for parking. More information is at www.dakota.mn.us. Page 4

Apple Valley / Rosemount

• The six-acre Master Gardener Education & Research Display Garden, 1605 160th St./County Road 46, which is periodically open for public events. More information is at www.mggarden.umn. edu. • Bike from Rosemount to Hastings and back again on county roads 42 and 46. It’s a scenic stretch of road that has an ample shoulder to ride on without hitting the brakes too often. • Participate! Get involved in the local community by volunteering with one of the many local youth Parks and Recreation sports or school activities (www.ci.rosemount.mn.us or www. district196.org) or a special event like the annual Haunted Woods Trail or Rosemount Leprechaun Days (www. RosemountEvents.com).

Golf Courses DAKOTA COUNTY

There are plenty of golf courses in the south metro, where golfers of all experience and proficiency levels can play. Courses range from holes with beginner and casual golfer distances to championship flight designs. While this is not a comprehensive look at all area courses, it is a sampler that should provide a good starter kit. Those who are looking to get in a few swings and a little confidence booster can find it at courses such as the Apple Valley Golf Course, Birnamwood in Burnsville or Rich Valley Golf Course in Rosemount. These courses offer ninehole rounds that provide a neighborhood golf experience. The holes are forgiving, sometimes, with their shorter distances or wide fairways. Because of this, the courses play host to a wide range of golfers from youngsters to seniors and everyone in between. Birnamwood is a nine-hole, par-27 public golf course that is owned and operated by the city of Burnsville. Apple Valley Golf Course, which is privately owned, is a nine-hole executive-length golf course that can help those looking to play target golf. Rich Valley Golf Club is an 18-hole executive-length golf course in Rosemount and has an additional nine-hole layout. The course has a few strategically placed trees, water and sand traps. It provides a step up in challenge while still offering the executive length. Among the public diamonds in the rough in the area are, Southern Hills Golf Course in Farmington, Valleywood Golf Course in Apple Valley, Parkview Golf Club in Eagan and Emerald Greens Golf Course in Hastings. Southern Hills is an 18-hole, par-71 course measuring longer than 6,300 yards and is billed as offering both fun and challenge

18 bunkers, a lake and pond. Emerald Greens is located just outside Rosemount’s eastern border with Hastings. With 36 holes of championship golf, Emerald Greens has flat and undulating sections. It has signature holes scattered throughout the course, such as the pond-protected par-3 and a hole with a postage stampshaped green. Boulder Pointe Golf Club in Elko New Market opened to the public in August 2002, and touts itself as having greens and turf conditions that compete with the best in the metro area. Crystal Lake Golf Club in Lakeville features stately pines, pristine wetlands and is accentuated with seven ponds, which create challenging water hazards. This 18-hole, par-71 course has three sets of tees ranging from 4,805 to 6,306 in yardage and offers gently rolling hills and natural reclaimed Minnesota wetlands to challenge all levels of golfers. Legends Club in Prior Lake Thisweek file photo features a 30-acre lake, cascading Southern Hills Golf Course in Farmington challenges golfers with creeks, scenic wetlands, deep water, sand traps and plenty of changes in elevation. ponds and dramatic topography, for golfers of all skill levels. Valleywood is a championship 18-hole course with ponds, doglegs and a healthy dose of woods. The course requires good management, as the long ball is only sometimes rewarding. Fairway positioning is at a premium at Valleywood. Parkview bills itself as the “First to Open, Last to Close” for two reasons. One is that the course often is the first to open in the spring and the last to close in the fall. The fully public 18-hole course also earns the title because it is one of the few golf courses in the metro that host “Glow Golf.” The night rounds are played with a special ball that glows in the Thisweek file photo dark. The course features gentle Heritage Links Golf Course in Lakeville offers a challenge to hills and a wide variety of trees, golfers with rolling terrain, water and sand hazards.

Clinical SKIN Therapeutics is located inside Apple Valley Medical Center. Our goal is to provide

you with the most advanced skin care and laser services; and bring them to you in a safe and familiar environment that is physician owned and supervised. Apple Valley Medical Center opened its doors 35 years ago with a group of physicians whose common goal was to build a Medical Center that provides high quality, comprehensive care to the south suburban communities. Our team of Medical Directors have carefully researched and chosen the most effective equipment and experienced staff to address your concerns. Furthermore, these Physicians are on site at all times to ensure safety and efficacy of service. After much research, we have elected to use the Sciton ProfileTM Laser. This allows us to have several tools on our belt as not all skin, or concerns are the same. Our range of services cover non-invasive procedures such as hair removal, sun spots or broken vessel treatments as well as ablative MicroLaser PeelsTM which may require a couple days of down time for the patient. Our most popular treatment is the ProFractionalTM laser procedure used to treat wrinkles, lines, and scars while evening out skin tone and texture with minimal downtime. This is our personal favorite as it provides the “most bang for your buck.” Finally, we not only offer, but encourage complimentary consultations be done prior to any procedure. We want to be sure you are a good candidate for the procedure you are interested in doing. Call or email for more information or to set up your appointment.
