I been living in Glenwood for majority of my life and never had a problem with being here. The schools that reside in the community are good. There is a good amount of food options that could be found here. Also, Glenwood is close to other towns such as, Homewood, Lansing, Dolton, Tinley Park & Orland Park. Being in an area close to these towns make a lot more options for you in entertainment, places to explore and restaurants.

I really like my community because everyone is very family-oriented and helpful to their neighbors. However, I wished there were more events for the whole neighborhood to attend for a chance to socialize and network.
great place to raise a Family. Safe environments for children, active police force. Quiet neighborhoods with very little traffic.
