River Grove Reviews
River Grove is a warm, welcoming place with many activities and a wealth of opportunities to have fun and thrive in the community.
I live near a couple people who are in high school and tend to cause trouble, but other than that it's a fairly safe area. The teenagers coming from the high school next to me tend to drive pretty recklessly so that is a concern. Also, the police don't seem to care that much. I've seen numerous police cars blowing stop signs and using their sirens just to get through a red light and then shutting their sirens off when they got past.
I really like the fact that everyone in the city tends to be very nice and that they are able to talk to one another. It is a small city so everyone is your neighbor. The only thing I would change is that we don't really have many businesses in our city that we can go to. We always either have to go to Melrose Park or Franklin Park for gas, food, shopping, etc.
