Moved here a year ago and absolutely love it! It's a safe family oriented town. The Roswell North Elementary school worked out well for our kids- it has a great community of involved parents and wonderful teachers&staff with access to the park nearby and its creek for regular natural studies field trips. The Roswell Park provides an abundance of outdoors activities, after school enrichment and sports as well as camps at affordable costs for different ages, tennis courts and a great swimming pool. If you're within RNE proximity you'll have easy access to shopping and dining as well as walkability to downtown and park. Junior sports league in Roswell are top tier. Monthly events planned - Live After 5 every 3rd Thursday of the month, with bands, street performers and kids activities; organized bike rides throughout the year as it is developing into a very bike friendly town. All in all Roswell is a big city with a small town vibe where you can get a lot of house for your money.
Roswell, Georigia is a wonderful place to live. Historic Roswell was one of my favourite areas while I lived there. The diversity of Roswell makes everyone feel welcomed an at home. I attended a local public high school had a great experience there. Everyone you meet is friendly, not to mention the great food options in the area. Roswell is diverse not only in ethnicity, background, age, and social status, but also in interests. There are constant opportunities for people to express themselves, whether that comes in the form of music, visual art, drama, or poetry with open mic nights and more.
