Battle Ground is suburban living with small town charm and the convenience of being a stone's throw from the city when you need to go for work or want for play. I've loved building relationships with my wonderful neighbors, my local grocery store clerks know me by name, and there's so much Natural Beauty to behold!

I love that Battle Ground has the country, town and everything in between! Anybody can fit in here and find a very nice community to live in.
Battle Ground is a pretty nice place. There are lots of things to do in Battle Ground. They have a driving school, a music store and even a movie theater. The schools are pretty good. I wish the town was a little bigger even though it is a small community. You never know when they might grow.
