I love living in Prairie Township because they do a lot for the community. The local fire department comes around to our home once a year to check our smoke detectors and brief us for 2-3 minutes on fire safety. The community center is great for families and it offers a lot of different community activities like Farmers Market, Touch a Trucks. The local fire department also has an annual fish fry with rides and games for the whole family. This brings the community together. Our family looks forward to it each year. We love living in Prairie Township because of the feeling as everyone coming together as one.

This area is extremely diverse in cultural background, religion, race, and socioeconomic status. The area is continually growing and attempting to improve, with city-wide remodeling and business additions.
About 10 minutes away from downtown Columbus, where there is a ton to do! South-Western City Schools is the school district for most of the area.
