Wonderful town, full of great families and involved parents who care about their kids education and extra curricular. The city is very clean with beautiful winding streets, and well cared for landscaping. Beautiful golf courses add to the beauty of the town, and add value to the area. Great selection of restaurants, and close to Polaris and Easton shopping malls. Excellent schools with amazing teachers from Elementary to high school. Beautiful school buildings that promote learning and entice hard work.

Powell is a wonderful place to grow up in. The schools are hard, but the community is so loving. Recently, our community came together in a time of need and put blue ribbons all over Powell. This was in honor of the families who passed from a plane crash. It's little things like this that make Powell so great and make me happy to be apart of it. Powell is a very clean area with a lot to do. Driving through Powell makes me realize how blessed I am to be apart of an amazing community. Everything is so close to each other. For example, the schools. Which is definitely a major perk. Overall, Powell is a wonderful city and I couldn't be happier.
I have been incredibly happy with Powell, the main part of town has been updated recently to include new restaurants, a few bars, and easy parking. The entire city is family friendly, from a great school district to entertainment including the Columbus Zoo & the Water park. This is definitely the town to call home.
