My experience in this city has been incredible. The lively environment is great for families and the events are so family-friendly. I have obtained numerous service hours here and spend most of my time engaging in numerous extra-curricular activities here. The public library is also a great component! The only thing I would change would be to decrease the pollution. Because the population of Flowood has increased, more cars are on the roads and I would hope to help decrease the amount of pollution they are causing and increase the amount of active people.
Flowood is an amazing town with great shops, restaurants, schools, and events. Although it is near Jackson, I have never felt in danger while I was in Flowood. The shopping center has shops of all sorts for all ages and types. It also has Italian, Mexican, Japanese, American, and fast food restaurants. The schools in the Flowood area have sent many kids to great universities and provide great athletic teams for students to join.
