I love the Olivette area because it’s so peaceful and I’m very close to everything. It’s also convenient because it’s really close to my immediate family and an easy travel to my son’s school and my church home!

Great parks, great neighborhoods, great services, great people. I’ve lived here for three years and love it. It is the most diverse place in Missouri with good schools, and excellent commuting to downtown.
Nice place to raise family. Good school district. Convenient location to locations across the metropolitan area.
