Minnesota River Valley

A snowy scene

All is tranquil in this snow globe scene. A marbled sky fades from orange to blue to gray and back again forming bright layers that resemble stained glass. Below this show of light, the landscape almost glows. 

The view is from the south side of the Old Cedar Avenue Bridge looking northwest. The Minnesota River Valley provides beauty year-round. 

Residents and visitors alike take pride in the high caliber of parks throughout Bloomington. The abundance of natural areas contributes to our quality of life. Preserving these treasures requires ongoing care and planning. Environmental sustainability is a strategic priority for the City.
