Garden Plain Township Reviews

1 review
I have enjoyed living in this area throughout my short life. One thing I enjoy the most about it is the close-knit community relationships that are made in the area. In a place where everyone knows everyone, you tend to make good connections and have a family-type atmosphere no matter where you go. Also, small-town communities stick together. The pride and spirit of the area (including the school-sponsored activities) is always phenomenal. There's a lot of passion where we come from. We don't forget our roots. That's why I love it here. It's not always fun not having anything to do in such a small town, but I wouldn't change it. Living here has shaped me into who I am today, and I'll never regret it. Besides, I can always travel to a big city and find things to do, then come back home to my cozy town. Life is great here!
