Battle Ground is my home town. I find it to have grown quite a bit. It is a small town that has an excellent food/restaurant selection. It was has a fabulous range of grocery stores ranging from Albertsons, Safeway, Fred Meyer, including even a recent addition to a Walmart. It has a nice movie theatre and several small shops as well as a few local pubs. Battle Ground has great schools and is a quaint little town compact with all of the necessities to live without having to travel outside of it's city limits.
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.
