North Oaks is found in Ramsey County, which is known for being very active. There are many attractions throughout the county that provide the ability to live a healthy lifestyle. Whether you prefer to walk, bike or another activity, you will find it throughout the communities in Ramsey County.

Active Living Ramsey Communities is an initiative in the area that helps people stay healthy. It was created in December of 2004 to ensure residents have a variety of healthy and physical activities available.

Getting Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the initiative. From partnering with Active Living Ramsey Counties to becoming a part of a biking or walking team, residents and businesses can become involved. Another way to get involved is to attend the meetings of the coalition, which are held quarterly at the Ramsey County Library - Roseville Branch.

This coalition allows the communities in the county, including North Oaks, to enjoy plenty of biking, walking and other active resources.  They also help with city planning to include more bike paths and walking trails. Currently, there are plenty of areas where you can enjoy biking and walking including:

  • Arden Hills City Parks and Trail System
  • Falcon Heights Bike and Pedestrian Path
  • New Brighton Trail and Sidewalk
  • Roseville Pathway
  • Saint Pay Bikeways
  • Vadnais Heights Trails
  • White Bear Lake Trails
  • And More!

Many other facilities are in the works, as well. With the many lakes found in the North Oaks area, Shoreview right down the road and Vadnais Heights close by, there are plenty of trails and bike paths to enjoy. Residents can stay active in this community as a part of many different events, the coalition and other programs specifically designed to help people live a healthier lifestyle. If you prefer to live an active community, North Oaks is a good choice.
