Roseau is a welcoming and warm community of 2,700 residents and features an excellent public school system, diverse employment opportunities, comprehensive health care options, diverse civic and community organizations and a strong retail area. Roseau is the birthplace and is still home to the snowmobiling and Polaris Industries.

Located in an environmental transition area of Minnesota, Roseau sees where the coniferous forest gives way the prairies of the Red River Valley. As a result of this unique location, wildlife enthusiasts appreciate Roseau’s outdoor paradise. Nearly 40% of Roseau County is open access State or County parks, forests or wildlife areas. These areas provide ample opportunity for hunting, bird and wildlife watching, ATV riding, horseback riding, snowmobiling, berry picking, hiking and cross-country skiing, just one reason why Outdoor Living Magazine ranked Roseau “20th best city in the nation for outdoor enthusiasts to live”.
