Fenton Township is a great place to live. I have raised 3 boys in this township. The Lake Fenton schools are amazing with great teachers. We have lived here for 17 years and have enjoyed the lakes it has to offer. We have a boat on Lake Fenton that we keep at Skipper Buds Marina in the summer time. There is a variety of places to dine that are unique. The people are very welcoming, accommodating and accepting of all types of people. The housing is booming. When it's time for my grandbabies to come I hope they are all raised here.

Linden is a great town to raise a family in. It's safe and overall a wonderful environment with friendly people. The town is always thinking of ways to improve for the people, hosting events to keep us busy and having fun! The schools are full of loving staff members that care about the students in the classroom and out of the classroom. I'm glad to have been brought up here.
One of my favorite things about Linden is the amount of parks that it offers. The area is beautiful in all seasons, especially fall and winter. I would live here again just because I am a big nature person, however it is not as amazing at places like the Rocky Mountains or Yellowstone Park. The future however looks great, because of the surrounding areas and Linden increasing in popularity with people.
