Nestled in the River Hills community in Burnsville, Minnesota, just south of the river at the corner of Highway 13 and River Hills Drive, The Rivers puts you minutes away from the Mall of America and the Burnsville Center. Hwy 77 is less than one mile east and Hwy 35W is less than 5 miles west.
“We looked at four facilities. The main thing that attracted us to The Rivers was all of the activities my mother could attend. In our previous facility they had 2-3 activities a week. The Rivers has close to 70 a week and mom has a great selection to choose from. The facility is beautiful and the residents are very friendly. I had a good conversation with the kitchen manager about mom's meals. All of the staff is so helpful here.”
The Rivers opened in 1999 on land previously owned by The United Methodist Church. The community adopted the name “The Rivers” because of its location just south of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers. In 2016 The Rivers joined the Transforming Age family of communities and officially became a not for profit organization.
