Denham Springs is a quaint town with a big personality. Arriving in 2014 from Salt Lake City, Utah, the differences between the cities are like night and day. Salt Lake City has an abundance of tall buildings, massive structures, and a constant "bustle" paired with miles upon miles of snow-capped mountains, and let's not talk about the snow! The warmth was a welcome change. Denham Springs may not have mountains, but they do have PRIDE! From keeping our city clean, our family oriented facilities operational, and a wide variety of festivals, Denham Springs is all about community.

Denham Springs is relatively quiet and a country setting where i currently reside. Overall, in my opinion, Denham Springs is a nice town and is a good area as far as the amount of crime and locations of stores. Although i have never been involved with their school system, i have heard that their schools are high ranked. I would like for my town to have more of a variety of medical facilities as well as restaurants, but the interstate leading into Baton Rouge is not too far away which is where most of these facilities are located.
Denham Springs is my home town. Been here all my life 60 plus years, and love it here. Back in the early days, wasn't many people here, so I knew everyone around. Now so many people have moved in, don't know any of them, most have no manners. Traffic sucks now. These dumb new people will block the road at range and rushing road red light, knowing that when the light turns green for the others to go. No one can go cause there's always some dumb ass setting under the red light blocking the road. Housing developers have put in so many subdivisions with houses so close together. They have blocked the natural drains that once lead to the creek. If they would load the bus, I'ed gladly drive these new people back to where they come from.
