great place to live! Family friendly! Wonderful schools, police and fire departments! Been here 30 years. Beautiful tree city with amazing mature
trees. Families are proud of their homes and take good care of them. Close to Hwy 44 so commutes are easy. Great restaurants in near by Kirkwood. Farmers market there as well. Many small businesses close by as well!

Glendale is the most amazing place to live. Everyone takes care of each other, the schools are phenomenal, and it is the best "small town" feel in a big city. We love raising our three children here and couldn't imagine a better place to live!
Excellent community with fantastic schools, pride of ownership, and the best neighbors! We love living in Glendale!
