Glendale is a small, family-friendly community that is a part of Webster and (majority) Kirkwood schools. Many of the small older homes are getting knocked down to build huge $700k+ four bedroom, three bath homes on these small lots. The community is great, especially if you have kids, but everyone who lives on my street looks the same as me, yet the schools try to push diversity by bussing in kids from the city, while in the long run Kirkwood really should be pushing and helping black and brown families move to the area.

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!
