My experience in Ville Platte has been fairly good compared to the other places I have resided in. People in the town are very friendly and helpful. Ville Platte is a very quiet town, with low crime rates. Many people that live in the town of Ville Platte know each other and are related.Living here is like living with one big family.

Ville Platte, La is a town that is rich in culture. The town is gorgeous and has history around every corner. The town needs to be cleaned up a bit, historical areas need to be better preserved and recognized. Recently, there have been cuts to policing in the parish so it has its issues. With a little help, it has potential of being a really great and historical place to visit which in turn would better boost economy in the area.
It is a good place to raise s family but lacks the economic development needed to bring new people in and boost local government revenues which then in turn can be used for new roads and projects.
