Buffalo is a mix of small community charm and suburban amenities with a charming downtown area and various large retail located on the main highways of Highway 55 and Highway 25. Buffalo is located just outside the Twin Cities Metro area about 42 miles northwest of downtown Minneapolis and also a convenient drive to the St. Cloud Metro area. Buffalo is the county seat of the growing Wright County and a regional destination for shopping, services and leisure.
Population is 16,033 as of 2015 (demographer’s estimate) and growing.
Buffalo residents are fortunate to have two valuable natural resources in Lake Pulaski and Buffalo Lake. Both of these lakes are precious to us for the many recreational and leisure time activities that they provide. The City of Buffalo believes it is important to educate its residents about what they can do to prevent pollution problems to these lakes, and provide simple steps to help protect their natural resources.
Beautiful Place to Live
Buffalo received the America in Bloom national contest award for its focus on tidiness, environmental awareness, community involvement, heritage preservation, urban forestry, landscaped areas, floral displays and turf and ground cover. Each year, the city’s streets are aligned with hanging gardens and in-ground floral displays making the community a very attractive place for visitors as well as those who enjoy living in Buffalo.
Buffalo’s many assets such as its location, dedication to revitalization, economic development and a strong workforce continue to draw new business ventures to the community. Buffalo recognizes the importance of staying connected to this ever-changing world and it stays connected to information via the Internet. Internet access is a major benefit for business in the area. You can access the Internet anywhere from Bison QuantumCONNECT.
