Parish is a very cozy small town with a country feel, but still close enough to the highway and larger towns and cities that you still feel part of the rest of the world. It is a family friendly, pleasant and safe place to live. The only thing I wish would change would be that Parish would allow water in, as my water is terribly hard.

Parish is a great place to live for those not interested in a busy, city life. Its small, yet it is also easy to get involved with others in the community. The only downside is there aren't as much opportunities offered in the school as there would be in a "city school".
I grew up in this area! Small quaint town where everybody knows your name! Sad part, no grocery store
