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!

I absolutely love living in Grosse Pointe Park! I am currently renting, but there are so many great things about the area. If you live here, you have access to two private parks, a movie theater, and an amazing community. The public schools are very highly rated. I can walk to anywhere in the community with my children and I feel safe throughout the neighborhood. I definitely plan on buying a home here once I graduate and find a full time job!
A very warm city with kind patrons and good entertainment. The weather is very pleasant in the summer, and everyone I know everyone I have met here in the Park has been kind and very friendly. I have spoken even with residents of the other Grosse Pointes - City, Shores, Woods and Farms - who have told me they love our city above the others because of how charming the residents are. There are also many events and much entertainment. A great place to be a part of!
