Centerville is located approximately 15 miles north of St. Paul and 20 miles north of Minneapolis.
Centerville is located in southeastern Anoka County, which is part of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area. The City is surrounded by the City of Lino Lakes and lies between two major interstate highways: I-35E and I-35W. Because Centerville is at the intersection of Interstate 35E and Anoka County Road 14, there is excellent freeway access. Easy freeway access near the industrial park and commercial district is the number one reason why businesses locate in Centerville. We are also only 10 miles South of Forest Lake on either 35E or Highway 61 and we are 2.5 miles west of Hugo on County Road 14.
The county seat is in the City of Anoka, 20 miles west of Centerville, located on the Mississippi River in the southwestern part of the county. The County has relatively level topography, with the northern part of the County having a more rural character and the southern part consisting of developing and fully developed suburban areas.
Many of our businesses and residents consider Centerville's quiet home-town atmosphere and short commuting distance to the Twin Cities an exceptional combination.
