Greendale is a very tight knit community. Everyone knows each others families and everyone is very kind and respectable. The schools are top tier in terms of education and athletics. Both the teachers and coaches try their best to encourage the groups of students they have and strive to help them achieve their goals. The village of Greendale is a very clean and organized community. Out of all the neighborhoods I've lived in, the village of Greendale is by far my favorite and I recommend it to anyone that's looking to move into a suburb.

This place is a very safe and cute community. It is located close to everything you could ever want and need. Within in a short trip you are connected to every freeway system to take you whereever. You have one of the largest malls in the state right within walking distance of your homes. This village is historic and very safe. The crime rate is practically zero when you don't include the mall.
Enjoy the Greendale Village, many nice shops including pizza, ice cream, salons, clothing, etc. Southridge Mall is located in Greendale and an awesome mall to shop and hang out. Small friendly community. The Greendale school system is very good. Nice place to shop and visit.
