Walker is a very interactive community. There are a lot of great events that go related to seasons and holidays like winterfest. There are several schools in the district that provide transportation and are easily accessible. It is very family friendly with many recreational activities like parks, restaurants and an ice and fitness center plus many housing opportunities. It is also more affordable than most other areas like living in the city.

Walker is a wonderful, tightly-knit community of very friendly people. The city provides many extremely helpful facilities to the public and anything you could need is readily available and nearby.
It's small, but there isn't a huge difference between Grands Rapids & Walker. I've lived in Walker for almost my entire life. There isn't much crime, and the local public & charter schools are nice. IT's pretty quiet, even with the few busy roads.
