Business and industry thrive in the Sheyenne River Valley because it offers "a place to be" rather than just a site. The community has the ability to attract and retain talent because of the many activities and amenities found here. Imagine stepping out of your workplace at the end of the day and exploring miles of hiking trails or hunting pheasant for an hour or two before going out to your favorite restaurant. Maybe you'd rather wind down with a round or two of golf or canoe down the Sheyenne River.
That's what making a living and having a life is all about. It's easy to make Valley City home and enjoy its charm whether it's in our public swimming pool, skate park, municipal golf course, or one of our seven city parks. If you're in the mood for fishing, boating, skiing or camping, Lake Ashtabula is only 12 miles away and many other natural hotspots are nearby. The area has plenty to do outdoors in the wintertime, like cross-country and downhill skiing, but if you prefer to stay indoors, you can stay active year-round with an all encompassing membership program through the Valley City Parks and Recreation Gaukler Family Wellness Center.
