Greenacres is a nice place to live. But life ain't just about living alone, it's also about growing. Greenacres is a place that's pretty great to grow yourself and your family in. If your concern is the schools your kids will go to, the public schools a great. Schools like Palm Beach Central and John I. Leonard are schools with long decent reputations and diverse student bodies. Greenacres also is not a city that's costly to live in, yet if you are a person that can afford it, there's more costly areas to buy homes in. Greenacres is a good middle ground, and a good place for all kinds of people.

Greenacres provides a quiet, diverse community where you can always find something to do. There are so many different restaurants and shopping spots!
Very good place to live. It has everything within this town a library, post office, banks many city parks. Good place to raise kids. This town is extremely diverse. This town has some fun but not too much a bowling alley and a movie theater. It is quiet for the most part. For fun you might have to travel out of this little city.
