Marlow is a small town. There are small shops and good restaurants. There is a park and a splash pad for the kids to utilize. The local pool is a great place to spend a summer day. It is large enough to enjoy but small enough to be relaxing. They have an awesome school system. The faculty and staff all seem to care about the students and their success. The community if very involved with the schools too. The only downfall I have experienced is that as with most small communities, everybody seems to know everybody's business. Overall Marlow is a great town and I would recommend it anyone looking for a nice small town with an excellent school system.

Marlow is a small, self-sufficient community that values hard work and community. The people there are friendly and usually keep to themselves, and most people are willing to lend a helping hand to those who need it. The biggest problem Marlow has is the lack of diversity, as an Asian American who grew up in this town I have experienced minor levels of alienation at certain times due to the way I look. However, if you are looking for a quiet town to open a business in then Marlow is right for you.
Marlow is a small town in southwestern Oklahoma but even though is not the biggest town, it certainly is one of the best. The citizens of Marlow are always friendly and always give a helping hand. Marlow schools are very excellent and the teachers always help their students.
