Raymond Minnesota Community Guide


Location:
Raymond Minnesota population sign Location of Raymond, Minnesota

Traveling west, just 12 miles from Willmar on Highway 23, is the vibrant small town of Raymond. Itís where youíll find a safe neighborhood with a variety of fun and family-friendly recreational opportunities to keep residents active and healthy. In fact, itís where two of the countyís largest recreational businesses are locatedóTensen Marine and Apolís Harley Davidson.

Raymond takes great pride in the fact that it has established such a well-rounded community. Donít be surprised to find a cook-out or community picnic after church on Sunday or a patriotic celebration honoring the veterans whoíve fought for our country. The neighborhoods are not only friendly, but also safe for kids to race their bikes to one of the many parks. Itís hard to fully understand all of the reasons why ďEverybody Loves RaymondĒ until you experience it for yourself!
