Hobart Township Reviews

I love how being in this community on almost every street someone knows someone. It seems like Hobart was a great place to grow up because some many people have been here for generations of have come back with their children.
I have only been in Hobart for 3 years and I love it, it's a safe and small and caring town. I also think it's incredible how much the police department does for the children, there is always a cop at just about every community event. They're not there just as patrol but there as a guest to greet the families and put on K-9 shows or pass out candy. They are the best officers I've ever met. I am thankful to have moved here to Hobart and have my kids growing up knowing how a community really works.

I've lived in Hobart almost all of my life. There's always a festive in the summer months and the bar scene is good. We could use more restaurants and healthy eating. But overall it's great.
yes fix the rods, the rest is fine, kids have fun in the park, playing soccer indoor ,outdoor, or travel and people are wondreful
