Allendale is a great community. It is very family orientated with a lot of town programs geared toward families. It is a green town with multiple parks, lots of open spaces, one of the only bird sanctuaries around and a beautiful lake where people can join to swim all summer.
Schools are fantastic with many supplemental programs to offer to the children. Most families are very involved.

The town I live in is great. I've been blessed with a great education, nice friends, safe home, and so much more. It is an ideal place to raise kids. The only reason why I am not saying that my town "is the best" is because with so many great things, it sets people up for failure. My high school is ranked third in the state; our school sports teams are constantly winning championships; our students are going to the best colleges. This is all great, but if you aren't a star athlete, top notch student, or something like a prodigy, then you feel an external pressure from everyone's success around you. Other than that, however, my town is great.
Growing up in Allendale is one of the best experiences I have ever had. The schools are amazing and the town is so nice and small. I grew up on a street where all of the neighbors were in our age group so my brother and I were always outside. I still live where I grew up and the neighborhood is great.
