O'Fallon Reviews

O'Fallon is your typical suburban town. We have a very strong and close community; there is little to no crime to be heard of, and if there is, it's barely anything more than a random robbery. The parks are beautiful, such as Fort Zumwalt Park and Civic Park. In fact, if you're looking for something fun to do in summer for you and/or your kids, Alligator Creek is a popular pool/mini-waterpark that's actually located right next to Civic Park! If you really look into it, there are so many more interesting places to visit in O'Fallon.

Going from acreage into more of an urban environment introduced me to new opportunities. I have had the chance to network with a lot of friendly associates, neighbors, and genuine people. Plenty of beautiful parks that have regular event's. O'fallon has a great public library that is well maintained. City hall is full of smilling faces, and even has theatrical plays throughout the year. Overall my town is kept clean of trash blowing around. Transitioning into the new school was easy as many of the millennial generation here is open to creating friendship. I would recommend O'fallon to people in other cities across the United States as being a wonderful place to raise a family. Lots of history if you look, and plenty of restaurants to satisfy your hunger. One thing I can think of changing would be to add some new public pools, or even a skating rink. Everyone should check out what O'fallon has to offer when they pass through going down highway 70!
My experience with O'Fallon started in 2008 when I moved here from St. Charles, MO. Overall, its been a close knit friendly community. The town offers many different attractions and is very family oriented. Parks, walking trails, dog parks, and outdoor events are just a few things you can look forward to in O'Fallon especially when the weather is warm. We have every restaurant you can imagine and fortunately all close by! My favorite thing is to eat on a patio when the weather starts to gets nice and there are so many options to do so. Families would feel safe in this town as well as plenty of activities offered to children. Whether its joining the many sports teams or an Easter egg hunt we offer it all. O'Fallon has turned out to be one of my favorite towns because of its friendly environment and feeling of safety. If i were to give this town a rating out of 10, it would definitely have a strong 10 in my score book.
