It is a very small community, but that's what makes it great. There's a lot of family owned businesses around and community based. The law enforcement and responders are caring as well.

Lowell is a very small town that is very affordable to live in and has everything you'd want in a home town. Lowell is very safe and has it's own fire and police station which can reach any residence in Lowell in less than five minutes. Community is mainly white, Marshallese, and Hispanic.
The city of Lowell, Ar is a very calm place to live, and there is a family park near by. Also the police station and fire station are close by, so it is safe. I do not like that the some homes are not well kept, and cars like to speed by at night.
