Being able to grow up in this area is a true blessing. I love the woods, the beauty and quietness of trees, rocks, rivers, and an abunance of green. Everyone has about an acre of land which makes it perfect for growing your own veggies or just enjoying the outdoors! True bliss.
West Greenwich is a welcoming rural, close knit community with many great features. It is a perfect town for a family with an excellent public school system and many youth sports programs like the EWG Youth Soccer Association, EWG Little League and EWG Recreational Basketball.
