We recently moved to Roeland Park and have been very impressed with the kindness. There are not many places to eat, other than fast food. It would be nice to have resteraunts. But, otherwise, we have a hardware store, grocery store and Walmart. All you need really.

Roeland Park is a cozy little town with lots of trees, well kept homes and gardens, and friendly neighbors. There is a Wal-Mart that drives down it's appeal and the city's police officers are comically unfriendly. Also, I would like to be able to have a firepit.
It’s my hometown and great. It’s comfortable, nice and in great proximity to downtown. Besides the few older shopping centers and run down strip mall, I love it!!
