I grew up in Livonia and it was a great community. I went to school there Kindergarten through high school and I made a lot of great friends and formed good relationships. Livonia has always been a pretty safe community. The neighborhood that I grew up in became a great community to me, almost like family. We were all very close and aware of what was happening in our own neighborhood as well as our city. The city is very good about making the community fun and involving everyone. There are sports teams for children to partake in and carnivals and fairs. There is a community recreational center that includes amenities like a pool, workout equipment, a track, a rock wall, a play fort for children, and more! Overall, Livonia is a great community to live in.

Livonia is a great city to start a family in, good schools, safe and affordable. The only downside is the lack of tolerance and diversity. Overall Livonia is the perfect place for raising families and making friends. The affordable housing market and location to so many expressways make it a hub for travelers and convenient for those working in surrounding cities or even states. Livonia is also the "Tree Capital" due to the number of trees per square mile and green spaces, such as parks and golf courses. The industrial area of the city is the best place to find parts for most of the skilled trades, this makes Livonia an excellent city for blue collar familes.
Our family moved to Livonia almost 60 yrs ago when I was 13. I went to high school and college here. We raised our chikdren here. This is a great city.
Best Police and Fire Depts... A very safe city. We are close to Detroit, Plymoith, Northville, Ann Arbor etc... There are many attractions and things to do close by. Many job opportunites also. Our family loves this city!
