Pleasant Grove has always been a safe, youthful community. There would always be opportunities for the community to spread their knowledge outside of Pleasant Grove. I happened to be one of many people who never took that for granted. The people, relationships, and organizations I have encountered through Pleasant Grove have assisted in making me the person I am today. I believe as this community continues to grow greater things will come to, and out of, it. The biggest change I would like to see in Pleasant Grove is an expansion of their facilities. As someone who understands the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, I think a Pleasant Grove Recreational Center would be great for the city. If Pleasant Grove had a recreational center it would be beneficial for the growing generation and those who look after them.

I have lived in Pleasant Grove since October 2005. The community is very safe I feel, but it is a very quiet town. If you are looking to get away from the busy city and just relax in the quiet, then Pleasant Grove is the place for you. Everyone knows everyone - literally! There aren't any night life activities, no children or teenage activities, and no job opportunities. The commute time is okay, you just have to leave extra early. It is a diverse community, family friendly, but the schools need a lot of work. My children currently attend private school.
I used to love living here when I was younger, however as I grew up the city of Pleasant Grove has become a place of poor living and dangerous. There is an increase in the amount of crime in the city. I have to resort to buying home security, surveillance cameras, and someone to check on the home while I am away at school or work. I know something will happen to my home someday, but I just don't want to be living there anymore when it does happen.
