Editor’s Picks FARMINGTON LAKEVILLE

Farmington retains its hometown feel and still has plenty of room to roam by Tad Johnson THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS MANAGING EDITOR

For those visiting family or friends in Farmington, they have found the perfect place to unwind and relax. Farmington is one of the last places in the metro area that still feels like everyone’s hometown. The city’s historic downtown is a big reason for this sense of place. Downtown is home to several unique shops, restaurants and other service providers to make a stroll at any time of the year a pleasant experience. In Farmington, there is still room to roam, and the city’s park system is a perfect reflection of that. Rambling River Park is the jewel of the system with a walking/biking path that winds over and around the Vermillion River – one of the few trout streams in the metro area.

There are plenty of spots to picnic or throw a Frisbee at Rambling River Park or the neighboring Feely Fields, which is the city’s baseball/softball complex. High school sports is one of the magnets of activity in Farmington. With a new high school opened in 2009, the venues for the youngsters’ games make for a great setting for the action. For sports schedules, go online at www.farmington.k12.mn.us. Those living in Farmington hopefully don’t take this bucolic setting for granted and get out and enjoy their town. If not, I’d encourage them to check out the constantly changing look of downtown. There’s a new City Hall and Rambling River Center for seniors and the rest of the

community in downtown. The Depot Way Art Park along the railway downtown is another gem to explore, and the city is on track to have its second summer of Farmers Market this year. Of course, downtown’s collection of shops and restaurants is always changing offerings, so it’s worth a look to see what’s new.

Lakeville has evolved into a city with a lot to offer any visitor by Larry Werner THISWEEK NEWSPAPERS EDITOR

It wasn’t all that long ago that Lakeville was the village farmers visited when they “went into town” to stock up on provisions. Over the past 30 years or so, it has evolved from a village to a city of 38 square miles where more than 50,000 people live, work and play. Despite the rapid growth of suburban housing, Lakeville hasn’t lost its small-town charm, and has added amenities that make it a fun place to visit as well as a great place to live.

Farmington / Lakeville

A visitor should make sure to take in the historic downtown, which lies a bit off the beaten path in the southern part of the city. There’s good shopping downtown at places ranging from tony boutiques to one of the few surviving Ben Franklin stores – a classic dime store where the aisles are crowded with affordable notions ranging from model airplanes to Christmas lights to fabric. Want to get something to eat? The collection of downtown eateries includes burgers, ribs, sandwiches, wraps, salads. There’s also a winebar, and an old-fashioned sweet shop. Nightlife in Lakeville includes live music, comics, and jazz bands. There’s a wide variety of performing arts at the Lakeville Area Arts Center, which the city built from the old All Saints Catholic Church on the south end of Holyoke Avenue, Lakeville’s main

street. If you’re a biker, climb on your twowheeler and head west out of downtown for a tour on bike trails that take you through Antler’s Park on the shore of beautiful Lake Marion. There’s a swimming beach there, in case you want to take a dip on a hot day, and plenty of space for picnics. Ritter Farm Park is a favorite place to see Lakeville the way it was before it became a suburb. Or you can walk around Lake Marion, enjoying the water views on one side of the trail and beautiful lakefront homes on the other. Finish your hike at the Veterans Memorial in Aronson Park near downtown, where you can see an historic fighter jet donated by Bill Studer, a lifelong resident of the community. Shoppers also should check out major retail activity at 185th Street and I-35, Crossroads of Lakeville (Dodd and Cedar) and Lakeville Crossing (Highway 46 and Cedar). There is also shopping at Southfork, near I-35 and Highway 50, which has become known as Lakeville’s Uptown. Visitors can cap the night by checking into one of Lakeville’s hotels.

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 nine-hole 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 ninehole 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 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 dark. The course features gentle hills and a wide variety of trees, 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 stamp-shaped 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, Page 42

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.
