New Richmond has a wide variety of living communities. The area is beautiful, boasting several lovely parks, several with play equipment and basketball or tennis courts. They also have a lake for fishing, boating and swimming. It is a peaceful community where you always feel welcome. There are major businesses here and quaint local shops as well making this a desireable and attractive town. There are so many sports options here. There are many bike and walking paths along a creek, and many deer wander through the community as well. They also offercommunity education and wonderful schools. The teachers care about their students and provide a nurturing and caring environment for children. There is a community college. This community cares about each other - small enough to know one another, and large enough to provide all that you could need.
I like the education system in New Richmond as well as the parks and walking trails. It is nice to have good schools with quality teachers as well as a good bus system. It is nice to have a college that is so close as well, since both my husband and I have taken classes there. A downside is the cost of living in this town. The housing market is very high, and the cost of rent is also extremely high. We enjoy our lives and enjoy living in this town. Another perk is having the options for so many grocery stores.
