I live in a very small township, Ball, LA. This town measures so small that it could be considered a neighborhood itself! Overall, this community is very tight-knight, safe, and religious. The town was recently named the safest city in the state of Louisiana! The police station is central located and is manned by a group of hardworking, dedicated individuals. I highly recommend this neighborhood for hardworking people of all walks of life!

Central Louisiana is a very average place to live. The schooling options are above average, with an array of high ranking public and private schools available for residents to choose from. This area does have an interesting history. As far as attractions, it is very average; however, being located in the center of the state of Louisiana does allow the residents easy access to everything else! This area tends to be rather conservative in its views, though discrimination based of race, religion, sexuality is absolutely not tolerated! The police in the area are wonderful and help make/keep this place safe!
I truly love living in my community! The area is very small; however, the amenties that the town has set up for her citizens is impressive! The town has wonderful schools, roads are maintained and cleaned, there is a large walking track, an updated children's park, a very involved community, excellent police force, and a general sense of safety prevails. Though the town could improve in some areas, I have very little to complain about!
