Very quiet town, nice to raise children in. Local shopping, summer events, swimming pool, several schools, nice library. Inly 15 minutes drive from the city of Wichita. I would recommend Goddard to any family wishing to raise a family.

Goddard is a suburb of Wichita, Kansas, with some major perks. I grew up there, and it is the perfect location to grow up with a big city to the east, and country life to the west. There's practically a zero percent chance you will find a partner here to start a family, but it is a wonderful place to raise a family.
We moved here to Goddard about 7 years ago, and to be honest, it has been a wonderful experience. The school districts here are amazing. They have small and large businesses.
