Arnold Reviews

27 reviews
All Categories
Arnold has all of the amenities of other St. Louis suburbs but all very centrally located on one main street, Jeffco Blvd. There are three major grocery stores, several retail stores, a plethora of eating establishments from fast food to morre moderate priced dining. It is also just minutes away from other large st. Louis suburbs.
My community isn't large but isn't small either. Most of the people are friendly and helpful. There are a lot of places to eat and shop around here. Not too much entertainment though, but there is a cinema and two parks where you can play and fish and picnic and a dog park. We are only 20 minutes from downtown where most of the activity takes place. Most people have lived here for a long time, my family has been here for almost 11 years at our current residence.
Arnold's police officers are out and about all the time, every time I drive somewhere I'm bound to see at least one officer. The safety of the town, in my opinion, is great kids can be outside without a parent worrying about something happening to them. Also I never hear of anyone stealing or robbing businesses or anything else along those lines. The police constantly drive through neighborhoods and are out on the streets and if they aren't there are police cameras on just about every stoplight in Arnold.
