I grew up in Roselle, and didn't move up until about a month ago. Roselle not only was my hometown, but it felt like home. Although the town was fairly big, it was easy to run into familiar faces. There was never a moment where a family member or I felt unsafe or in danger, for Roselle was and extremely safe and secure town. With Lake Park being the towns high school, and which I currently attend, it's always neat to see the entire town come together for sporting events through the school. People connect and converse with one another with ease. Roselle is a great town, it is truly a home and other than the occasional moments of not having much to do in the town, there really is nothing negative for me to say.

I've been living in Roselle for a few years. Roselle is a friendly suburb. There are parts of the town that is quiet and peaceful and some that is noisy amd active. There's a vareity, which is nice because some prefer to live in the noisy or quiet part of town. I live in the semi noisy and quiet part of town. I'm within walking distance of small restaurants, gas stations and public schools. Yet, I'm surrounded by 1 floor homes and public parks and forest preserves. It's easy to navigate your way around here with a GPS or even asking locals. The scenery of dog walkers, families, trees, homes and restaurants will certainly make you think of the suburbs. The crime rate is low here,but the safety rate here is high. We even have a curfew and lots of police cars roaming around to ensure the safety of locals. I love Roselle. So much to explore or even settle down with a family.
Roselle is a great town to live in. It’s extremely family oriented. The people are kind, they take care of their houses, and the schools are great. Close to highways and train. The police officers keep us safe and are always keeping us informed on what’s happening. The downtown area is very nice and I’m excited to see what is more to come.
