Crime & Safety
The suburbs of Jenks is a charming community right outside of Tulsa that is very family friendly and a great place to call home. The public schools are among the best, allowing students to challenge themselves and engage in classes they are interested in. It is a fast growing town with new stores and fast food restaurants popping up quickly. The downtown area is a strip of antique shops with neat treasures and other stores with incredible finds. They even hold a few events in this area from time to time, such as car shows or events affiliated with Jenks High School. However, because it is such a small community, finding a job within this area can be difficult, and the construction being done near the Creek Turnpike has been a hassle the past couple months. What I would recommend in order to make the town even better is to hold more events on Main Street and continue to add stores and restaurants for the civilians.
Jenks is a perfect town to raise a family. It is close proximity to shopping and activities but also just close enough to the country life. The schools are excellent and some of the top in the state. While the population continues to grow, it still has the small town feel which I love.
Jenks is the best town! It has anything and everything you could ever want in a town. It is a small town with all of the benefits of larger one.
