Walters is a great small town located in the center of 3 larger cities. Since there is not much shopping and food options located within the city, with little effort and time you can find whatever you want or need. With that said, because there is not much in town Walters remains a quiet, safe, family-oriented city. Having spent nearly two decades in the town I still have a very high opinion of the town and its people. It is filled with culture, and events that keep the city active. My overall experience with Walters is very high!

Walters is an idyllic small town in beautiful Southwestern Oklahoma. A very underrated place to live. The weather, despite its ability to change quickly, is quite amenable most of the year. I'm an avid gardener so the long growing season here is great! The town and region has a very interesting history regarding native Americans and the Wichita Mountains are close as well. I moved here after many years in DFW and love it. The town also has an active art community too. I love it here.
There are many things that I like about Walters Oklahoma. First I like how small it is and the fact that it don't have many people in it. I was born and raised in Walters so i makes it worth so much more. I've lived here and went to school here all my life. I've never experienced living in any other town. All of my friends and family live here, and it would be a big change to move anywhere else.
