The historic downtown features a variety of local shops and small restaurants, while the portion of the city nearer Highway 169 includes big-box retailers and restaurants of every stripe. One of the city’s newest commercial endeavors is an 820,000-square-foot distribution center for Amazon. Indeed, Shakopee has come a long way from its 19th century trading roots. The city’s population in 1990 was about 11,800 people, but by 2000 it had jumped to more than 20,500. The land was available to be developed, but the primary reason for the boom was realignment in the mid-1990s of Highway 169 so it went over the newly constructed, 1.1-mile Bloomington Ferry Bridge. The improvement meant Shakopee residents were just minutes from major Twin Cities thoroughfares such as Interstate 494. 

Shakopee, which traces its name to an Mdewakanton Dakota chief, saw a surge in development in the early 2000s, when hundreds of single-family homes, townhomes and multifamily units were constructed. As recently as 2009, the city permitted more than 300 single-family homes, though the pace of development has cooled some in recent years. Still, more than 60 single-family homes have been permitted in each of the past couple years. Even as development has brought new neighborhoods to the Highway 169 corridor, Shakopee retains its historic charm. While some of that derives from its historic places, it’s also due in part to the city’s wooded bluffs, abundant wetlands, and proximity to the Minnesota River. The city has placed a premium on protecting ecologically sensitive areas and conserving prairies and wetlands. Today, Shakopee includes 920 acres of parks and open areas. 

The city also features a relatively new community center that includes fitness equipment, gymnasiums, and a walking track. The community center also is home to an ice arena, teen center and skateboarding park. For people who prefer to exercise outdoors, Shakopee boasts 60 miles of recreation and transportation trails for biking and walking. Many of the trails also allow people to interact with or observe the city’s abundant natural resources.
