Recreational opportunities abound in Woodbury. The park system features 3,000 acres of dedicated park land, 40 community and neighborhood parks, and a swimming beach. The city's municipal golf course, Eagle Valley, opened in 1998. Woodbury also operates the Bielenberg Sports Center, which houses two indoor ice arenas and a field house with walking/running track. The outdoor complex consists of 18 softball/baseball fields, 18 multipurpose fields, picnic facilities with restrooms, play equipment, a sand volleyball court, and 5 miles of trails that wind throughout the complex.
In September 2002, the Central Park facility opened in the City Center area. The indoor park is the central space linking the R.H. Stafford (Washington County) Library on one end and the Southeast Area YMCA on the other end. Central Park houses Lookout Ridge indoor playground as well as School District 833's Early Childhood Family Education program.
Woodbury is the home of major employers, such as The Hartford, Assurant, Target.com, Fidelity National Information Systems, EcoWater Systems, Long Term Care Group, and Dean Foods, plus many smaller businesses and retail shopping enterprises. Woodbury is also home to Woodwinds Health Campus, which is anchored by a full-service acute care hospital.
Woodbury's greatest asset, however, is the people who live and work here. Hundreds of residents volunteer in city-sponsored programs and on advisory boards; many more take an active role in community life by donating their time through local churches, schools, civic and youth groups, and other organizations.
