Battle Ground Reviews

I grew up in this area and have spent time elsewhere but always find myself coming back! It's a comfortable area to live. I love going to church and teaching special needs kids basketball in Special Olympics. The area I live in is very rewarding to be a part of and never plan on leaving. There is a lot of growing in the county and is one of the fastest growing in the nation and for good reason. As long as people continue to work to make their community better, the better it will get and the more a person can get out of it.
Review Battle Ground
Battleground , WA is an amazing little , holistic town , 35 miles this side of Portland , Or . The minute you enter the town , there is a air about it. A good air , a safe air , and family air . I can not remember ever coming into contact with a rude or complacent employee. There is no Walmart in Battleground, WA , which I feel is awesome for the community and the economics of the town . I would strongly recommend a family looking for a nice , quiet , town , Battleground is the place .
This is honestly the best little town in America. Where neighbors take care of each other, and strangers aren't afraid to drop whatever they're doing to help someone. We had a tornado last year, and it was so nice to see neighbors lifting broken fences off cars and towing trees out of yards. I can honestly say Battle Ground has kept the spirit of small town America alive.
