I have been living in Pleasant Garden my whole life and would not have it any other way. Pleasant Garden is like a modern age Mayberry. Friendly people everywhere you go, supportive town hall committee, great resources, and a safe place to live. The town itself has; one elementary school, a drug store, two gas stations, one fire department, a Subway restaurant, a Dollar General convenience store, a funeral home, one Clapps Assisted Living and one Clapps Nursing Home, a diesel automobile shop, and five churches. I personally go to Pleasant Garden Baptist Church. It's located in the heart of the town. I have also been going there all my life. I love that church and the body of Christ who goes to Worship and fellowship there.

There's not really much to complain about. Close enough to Greensboro that everything's within relatively convenient distance, but just outside so you don't pay the city taxes. Kind of small, quiet town.
Pleasant Garden is a small town next to Greensboro, NC... It is where you live if you like the word rural. There are housing developments throughout the farmland experience and it is a quick drive to anything around. The land is still reasonable and the existing little town has a civic center with sports fields and a lot of rustic charm.
