Super friendly environment! They are always trying to improve the surroundings to better the overall city and the people who live in it. I am blessed to be in the public school system in Livonia. There is not one school that I have been present at that I would give a bad review. As a student, schools are always finding a new way to get students to get involved and especially as we got older, to lead the activities and interests that we got involved in.

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.
I have been living in Livonia for the past 5 years, and I can easily say I have had a great experience. There is a local mall, a lot of restaurants and other stores, parks, movie theaters, pools, and more. I do not have to go far from home for anything really. I love living in Livonia!
