    Broadview is a nice place to raise kids. More of a family neighborhood in which I enjoy very much. Have never experienced any violence and I've lived here for over 5 years. Don't know too much about the school system since I myself am a college student but it seems great. Not as much diversity as I would like but it's there. Everyone is pretty friendly. The storms can be horrible and the flooding is pretty bad especially if you live by the river. A lot of storms which makes it really convenient. I'm a city girl but I truly loooove living in broadview. I may miss the city some times but the quietness and peace of mind is well over worth it.
    I grew up in Broadview. It was a great neighborhood, no violence or anything unsafe. So glad I was able to have the childhood that I did in Broadview.
    The forest preserves here are great! It's very environmental and the forest are very well kept and clean of debris. We have a large deer population, but nothing for concern. They tend to stay in the forest, but if they wander out it never hurts anyone or pets.
