Chanhassen

Chanhassen is a city in Carver and Hennepin counties in the State of Minnesota. It is southwest of Minneapolis. The population was 22,952 at the 2010 census.[5]

The origin of the name comes from the Dakota word chanhasen meaning "sugar-maple tree" (chan, tree; haza, a tree with sap).[6] The northern metro area Hassan Township carries the latter syllable of the word to avoid confusion.[7] Chanhassen was ranked as the #2 best place to live in America in 2009 by Money Magazine,[8] and ranked fourth in Best Places to Live (Small Towns) in 2013.[9]
