Sidney is a small town which is nice for children who can walk to the park to hangout with their friends or to the community pool to swim in the summer. There are not too many activities to do which teaches children to use their imaginations to find games to play. The public school is extremely nice and has quite good sports teams and clubs for the amount of students. There are always problems in small towns with bad people who may use or sell drugs. yet, the amount of good outweighs the bad.

The area is small but very friendly. Most people in the area are sweet and are willing to help if you need it! Very small town feel. Some people are more close-minded then you would see in a more urban area.
Sidney is a rural town, very small. It’s biggest improvement so far has been a new sidewalk in the village. It has proven to be safe countless times for me. The only thing that I would change would be how the people communicate. We are very divided, old and young, people who love the town and those who don’t. It would be fun to have some way to bring people together.
