New Richmond lives up to its slogan “The City Beautiful” with parks and nature retreats sprinkled throughout the city. No matter where you are, you're never far from a peaceful trail or a quaint pond to relax by and get a breath of fresh air. The juxtaposition between a vibrant arts scene with a nearby metropolitan area and the quiet country life creates an environment that caters to everyone. 

Campus Neighborhood

The campus is centrally located to theaters, trails, restaurants, breweries, waterfalls and other stunning scenery. The campus offers smaller class sizes and a welcoming atmosphere, yet it is big enough to provide a diverse setting where you'll meet others who have similar interests as you.

Arts and Culture

New Richmond, known as "The City Beautiful," is located in gorgeous St. Croix Valley, which is known for its breathtaking scenery. The Willow River State Park is just a short drive out of town. The park's centerpiece is Willow Falls, a powerful cascade in a 200-foot deep gorge. Other nearby attractions include Crystal Cave, hiking along the St. Croix River and Willow River, stock car racing at the Cedar Lake Speedway, performances at the Old Gem Theater and the going back in time at the historic New Richmond Heritage Center.

Bicycle racks are strategically placed throughout the city, which were designed and created by Northwood Tech's very own welding students.
