I love Cascade Township because it has such a homey vibe to it. I have lived here my whole life; from the classic ice cream shops on Cascade Road to the well maintained parks all throughout the township, I can honestly say that I had a wonderful childhood growing up here. And even now as a teenager; if I am out late after a football game on a Friday night, I feel safe driving home knowing that I'm not going to run into any dangerous situations.

It is an expensive place to live, but that is outweighed by everything else that is just fantastic. The people are (mostly) friendly, and it is a safe place to walk around. The nightlife is awful, but Grand Rapids is a 10 minute drive.
It is a beautiful place to live and be apart of. Beautiful scenery with everything you could need right around the corner. A river which flows through the township is a great place to gather and enjoy your days off.
