I grew up in Walnut grove for 20 years, it’s been a great place for one to live and grow up I’ve often enjoyed running around the neighborhood and playing with my friends never felt unsafe, when I was in elementary school I attended Walnut Grove Elementary and enjoyed all 5 years until I moved on to Gaiser Middle Schoool I made lots of friends while attending Walnut Grove and always felt safe and had a lot of fun growing up here. Honestly out of all the places I could have grown up in the Vancouver Area I loved the fact that it was Walnut Grove.

The four seasons in the state of Washington reflect how others would call this the Ever Green state.

Fall is warm with leaves that turn red and yellow, Winter can be very rainy at times and ice can become a problem for the roads. Spring is a great time of the year, knowing that Winter is behind us and spring flowers start to come up from the ground and remind us that we made it through another winter. Summer is a wonderful place in the Northwest. We have a summer vacation land filled with water activities, local summer fairs, movies in the park, local Saturday markets and art creations and much more.
If there is a home break-in located in the neighborhood, most neighbors are helpful and look out for others and themselves. However, when the police are called and the event is reported, the local police cannot do a whole lot except report the break-in. Those that have not experienced a break-in, cannot understand the emotions that come with this event. The family feels violated and uncertain about their safety. It takes times to feel comfortable again.
