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.

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!
Great place to live!

Their police department does very sketchy things like drive around neighborhoods with their lights off. I was almost hit by them, not once, but twice.
