My experience with Hanover Park is amazing. I grew up around warm and caring neighbors that always help me out and support me. I have lived in Hanover Park all my life. I have also attended a public elementary school in Hanover Park and learned how to grow as a person from the warm environment this school and neighborhood provided. The climate of this suburb is very family friendly due to many of the neighbors having children of their own and also due to the fact that this neighborhood consists of 2 elementary schools. Another positive aspect of Hanover Park is that it is located in a convenient spot regarding restaurants, drug stores, retail stores, and many other places to spend recreational time. On the other hand, a negative aspect of Hanover Park is that many people speed their cars during the night time which can threaten people's safety. Some residents are also known to blast their music late at night while other residents are trying to sleep.

I have lived in Hanover Park all my life and it is a great place to be! There are plenty of family friendly places to go and things to do as well. The school system is also great and the kids are really taught well and given many opportunities to grow, learn, and become a part of the community. Overall, Hanover Park has a great sense of community for everyone to be involved in some way or another.
Hanover Park is a wonderful suburb and community. Everyone minds their own business. There's plenty of police officers from the local suburbs paroling and watching for danger. Many of the road are also well taken care-of. The lawns and homes of people are also in-tact and crisp. The reason I didn't rate this an overall 5 was because the Air Quality Index is 92.7 which is worse than average. There could be some environmental changes. perhaps installing Air scrubbers to control pollution. Building a Greenhouse also would be super beneficial. Not only to this, but also the Earth it self. It will leave a smaller carbon foot print, and hopefully it will diminish global warming itself.
