Elm Grove is a quiet village that is insulated from busy streets, fast food joints, strip malls, etc. I miss the sidewalks, streetlights, lake, diversity & liberal mindset of the east side, and we sometimes grumble about the lack of a great restaurant to grab a quick date night dinner... but I can't imagine leaving this little town. It is safe, the elementary school is phenomenal, and the village park is a hub for great events & activities. EG has a strong sense of community, and it's been a great place to raise a family.
Wonderful place to raise your family! Many families moving to the area with kids! Nice park! Excellent schools! Very safe town!
