Maple Grove experienced a rapid growth in the 1970s with the completion of the 492, 94/694 Interstates as well as the US route 169. The city was incorporated as a village in 1954 and became a city in 1974.

"So much to do...so many places to shop and eat"

Maple Grove has been rapidly growing over the last 15 years. The downtown Maple Grove area has every store and restaurant you could think of. There is still plenty of development going on in Maple Grove and if you spend some time there you will realize why developers continue to build single family homes, town homes and condos. The city is run efficiently and it is a wonderful place to raise a family. Rush hour can be daunting, but that is about the only negative thing I can say.
