Broken Arrow Reviews

I absolutely love Broken Arrow! Many members or our community get involved in the high school sports and attend the events. Also, the town is growing very fast because of the awesome schools. There is everything you need within a 10 mile radius; restaurants, groceries, and stores! The only changes I would like to see change are the amount of construction and for Broken Arrow High School to expand the campus or make a second high school because of over crowding.
Review Broken Arrow
I have lived in Broken Arrow for most of my life and I find it to be a lovely, ever growing town. It has been exciting to watch it grow so fast! the development of The Rose District on Main St. is a great addition to the night life and reasonable alternative to going to Downtown Tulsa. Perhaps even more reasonable for adults with children. Also, Hillside Dr. is shaping up to be something nice with it receiving an event center. If there is one thing I would like to see change, I'd have to say NSUBA, the local college. I'm not sure it if the city has much say in the matter, but if NSU could expand the Broken Arrow campus, I think it would thrive and Broken Arrow would flourish into something of a "college town." It would be mutually beneficial. Another thing I'd like the city to change that is also within the realm of education. I think Broken Arrow should build a second high school. I think the continuously growing population is too great for the school to accommodate.
Broken Arrow is the 3rd largest city in Oklahoma. It's residents are friendly and kind. Just the other day, our front door blew open and a neighbor ( we moved here recently and hadn't formally met) called into our house to check on us. The Rose District has fun downtown items for shopping and eating out. It's also closely located to 3 main interstates, which is a fast track to go where ever you would like. There is a beautiful park in our neighborhood with trees and a creek, which makes me feel at home. It's a great place to live!
