Garden City Reviews
Garden City is a fairly big city in Southwest Kansas. Out of the big three (Dodge and Liberal) Garden is the best to live in. However, a recent escalation in drug use has been an issue. A lack of places to eat is also a problem and the number of residents here is increasing each day. The only issue is Housing. If you want to buy a house, good luck! The housing market is ridiculously expensive compared to the jobs that are offered. Garden City is a mixing pot and you get the different races and cultures all in one town. Police department is excellent here.
The town is growing and the community is wonderful! Lots of new businesses are opening and new homes are being made. Garden City is diverse and welcoming, violence is rare. I was a student for seven years here and schools take great care and interest in the student's learning and success.
Experiences had while living in Garden City is the amount of diversity and culture that makes Garden City unique. The people are friendly, respectful, and helpful. The community is comes together when people need assistance, people have opportunities to grow in a ever growing town like this. The college's education systems gives people a chance to get a degree while still living and raising kids/grandchildren. Overall my experiences while living here are great and the community is something peaceful and calm. I highly recommend people to move here if you are wanting to spend more time with family or looking to bring a new experience to Garden.
