Forest Park is a good place to grow up in. It has a lot of diversity without being overcrowded, it’s a perfect size. It's a good place to have a normal childhood and life, a regular suburban neighborhood.That doesn't mean you can't thrive and make good money here though. A lot of people here have amazing jobs and support their families well. While forest park doesn’t have many attractions rather than kings Island not being too far away, it’s good for hanging out with friends and creating community. Since it’s not so big, you can get a good grasp of who a lot of people are.

My experience was okay. I grew up in Forest Park. It's very different now. It's more diverse. When I was growing up it was majority Black Americans. Now, it's Blacks and a lot of Mexicans ; some whites so it's more diverse. Which is a great thing. I think it's a good look for Forest Park today. I was teased a lot because I was well taken care of. My parents moved us to Fairfield then Colerain.
Forest Park is a nice place to live. It is a quiet suburban neighborhood. The houses and apartments are nice. The residents of Forest Park will not disturb you; it is very quiet. There are a variety of restaurants you can choose from, like Chiptole and Chick-fil-a(opens November 7).
