Goddard is a small town with a wonderful community. It has a wonderful town park with a new splash park. The school system in Goddard is smaller but well funded and in great condition. Overall the small-town feel is what Goddard, Kansas gives off, and it is a great tightly knit community.

I have lived in Goddard all my life and love living here. We are always improving and adding new things to our city. We have the small town atmosphere but also are can get to Wichita in 5 minutes and enjoy that as well. Goddard is a great place to raise a family and create memories. We are always adding new things but keep will always keep our annual events like the fall festival. Goddard also has two school systems and both are great schools.
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.
