Garden Ridge Reviews

3 reviews
Garden Ridge is a large community with an extremely low crime rate. Most of the residents consist of older veterans and large families that are quite well-off, and many are conservatives. Many of the people are friendly and hospitable. The library is modest with a nice selection of books and community events tend to be large and occasional. A quiet, cozy atmosphere exists throughout, and it is sometimes interrupted by gunshots from the shooting range nearby. A small set of one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants are close by, as is a gas station.

I feel very safe here. The City provides what could be best described as concierge services to its residents.
I love living in Garden Ridge. I feel very safe and have a great neighborhood and community. The schools in the district are phenomenal. There is not much of a nightlife which is okay because there are plenty of things to do in San Antonio.
