Reedley is a very small town that is fairly quiet. This means you're surrounded by familiar faces whether they be friendly or not. If you're not too careful everybody will know your business as well. It is fairly hot in Reedley around every season except for the Winter, but this is good for the multiple crops which are grown in Reedley. Reedley is referred to as "The World Fruit Basket" for good reason with crops ranging from Oranges to Almonds to Plums. Although there is not much to do for entertainment, many people go to the few parks we have here which makes Reedley a fairly active small town. Overall I enjoyed growing up in Reedley, but I definitely do not see myself staying there because I know there is so much more the world to experience.

I have lived in Reedley all my life. It is a small community but big enough to have space from other community members. There are many things I live and enjoy about Reedley like the schools, the community's support, and the services the town provides. Although the town has wonderful qualities one thing I would like to improve about the town are to build more areas for kids to play and hang out. While growing up in Reedley the only thing to do is eat. The town of Reedley should invest in places like a movie theater, arcades, or a bowling alley. I do realize that we are not a mainstream community but I think something like this would greatly benefit the community.
Reedley, California is a very small country town. I am originally from Oakland, California and moved to Reedley in 2008. I have lived there for 10 years now and is the place I call home. Recently I accepted a job back in Oakland, and am currently working there. It is very difficult to transition back into the fast paced city life. Compared to Oakland, Reedley is very small, quite, and a relatively safe place to live. There are not many things to do out there, but we keep ourselves busy with things like fishing, hiking, and other recreational activities. If there is anywhere I would recommend anyone to live, I would recommend Reedley, my home.
