Shawnee Township Reviews

3 reviews
This is a growing community with a sports loving atmosphere. It has been a nice place to grow up and would like to live here in the future. I enjoy watching and playing sports and there are some many opportunities to watch little league sports up to high school sports. The parks offer walking and bike trails, skating, tennis courts, basketball courts and sand volleyball. Other than sports, Jackson has small boutique shops, antique shops and a local conservation center. I think this is a great place to live and would do it all again. The community ranks about an 8 out of 10 in comparison to the rest of the country. It may rank 10 if an ocean was nearby in my opinion. This area will continue to grow with many job opportunities and the future holds a lot of for the people who live here now and the future.

This community does not have many crimes as the police are visible and truely care about keeping the area safe. Even at sporting events, a police officer is visible for safety purposes. It is rare in this community but crimes do happen but not as often as the people come together and look out for each other.
Small town, lots of farming/agriculture based jobs
