I love living in the Greenwood area. The crime rate is low, there are no problems throughout the city, and everybody knows everybody. The city is always working with the public as they are looking to add to the city. If I had one complainant about Greenwood, I'd say that there are not enough things for the younger generation to do. If High School students want to do something with their friends, they will have to travel 15-30 minutes into Fort Smith. Greenwood does have a variety of restaurants and stores which is nice. If the city ends up adding places for the younger generation to hang out this city would be 5 out of 5 stars.

Greenwood is a quaint little town located just south of Fort Smith, Arkansas. It consists of a tight knit community who know and support each other extraordinarily. From the beauty of local Bell Park to the great outdoor adventures awaiting at the Janet Huckabee Nature Center, there is always a natural escape at the ready for residents and visitors of this town, not to mention highly popular Friday night high school football that a great majority of the community attends weekly.
I love living in Greenwood, Arkansas. It is a small town, but with great resources. You do not have to go outside of Greenwood for anything, but if you want more variety Fort Smith is close enough to travel back and forth. The people are super nice and I always feel safe.
