Best city to raise a family! Excellent public schools, two waterfront parks (pools, splash pad, private movie theaters). Beautiful homes that residents take pride in keeping up. Public service is second to none!

Grosse Pointe Park is a wonderful, affluent community to raise a family. Unfortunately, those within the community are not the easiest people to fit in with. Everything, even little things like school leadership positions, can be based on the child's parents connections. Otherwise, the community is beautiful and safe. The Park has three parks that those who live here can access with ID. There are also some very nice places to go out to eat on Kercheval in the Park. The schools are fantastic, offering a great education with very wonderful teachers within safe buildings.
Grosse Pointe Park and the surrounding Grosse Pointes are very nice communities to live in. The houses are clean-looking and the community is safe so it's a really good place to raise a family. It's also good for families because the Grosse Pointe school district is really great; one of the best in the state. It's a good community to guarantee a good education for your kids and their safety as well. Although the Grosse Pointes are big, almost everyone knows or knows of everyone, making it a tight knit community. The public parks are very nice facilities and the village (a string of shops and restaurants) is really convenient. The location of houses in proximity to the village, libraries, parks, and schools, is almost always in walking distance. One of the only downsides of living in Grosse Pointe is that some of the "old money" families living on the lake do live up to their snotty reputations. Other than that, Grosse Pointe Park is a pretty enjoyable and safe community to live in!
