I live in an area that is defined as Lawrence on the map but it's still Indianapolis. I live in a remote neighborhood, shrouded by trees, animals and all kinds of nature (which during all of the seasons, it looks beautiful)! It's right up the street from an elementary school, Walmart, even fifteen mins from downtown Indy and ten mins from Fall Creek! All of my neighbors are kind and they keep to themselves. We interact on occasions, (especially our pets). The street we all live on is a dead end so it's nice to know who's coming down here (because not everyone comes down our street). Only downsides are that the roads (winding and such) become VERY slick and its easy to swerve and go into a ditch (that happened to my sister). That and the road that I turn down to reach my home, it's atrocious. There's potholes that have developed into craters and they repave it but it only seems to be on the days that it rains (which doesn't make sense) and we've all complained, but nothing so far.

All the schools I went to growing up in the district have been nothing but the best! Lawrence township community is literally like a big family! For example an elementary school principal died from getting hit from a school bus while trying to get the kids on the bus for evening departure and the whole community came together. All schools in the district were shut down due to a loss of a district principal. It was all over social media, the fact that even though it might not have been your principal or your school, you had sympathy because it was YOUR district. I love Lawrence Township.
Lawrence Township is a good place for people to live in. There are many great schools that are close by. Most of the people living in Lawrence are people that come from many backgrounds, so you will meet many people from different incomes which is great to know that not everyone comes from the same place. The population here is very diverse. There are many Hispanic people, Caucasian, and African-Americans. Lawrence has great places for family and friends to go have fun. Lawrence has Fort Harrison which is a National Park that is protected by the state. They also have a community park named, Lawrence Park.
