Our growing community is thriving and prosperous, while at the same time maintaining a safe, affordable, and enviable reputation. With over 75 percent of the population under the age of 50, West Fargo is home to many children and young adults. We boast an exceptional public education system. The West Fargo Police Department has two School Resource Officers and a D.A.R.E. Officer that are available for security, education, and counseling. Our growth rate of 72.9 percent reflects the quality of this community. Accessible park facilities, and a variety of housing options, and protection from flooding by the Sheyenne Diversion Project help to make the community of West Fargo an ideal city for your home. Boasting opportunities for both families and businesses, West Fargo combines all the benefits of a small town atmosphere but also remains competitive in the growing metropolitan area of Fargo/Moorhead.
