Waterford is a wonderful, family oriented community. There are several parks and trails to enjoy, as well as community events. I lived here for several years, raising two children here, and highly recommend our lovely little town. We have great schools, plenty of restaurants, many locally owned businesses, and several entertainment venues. Waterford is a wonderful place to live and raise a family!
