Walnut Grove Reviews

Walnut Grove is an amazing little town. Everybody is very friendly and everyone knows each other since it is such a small town. People look out for their neighbors and report any suspicious activity right away. In addition, it is a very safe place to live. It would be nice if there were more shopping stores here though.
