My family has lived in West Warwick for generations and I can understand why! The community support in this town is unmatched. Throughout middle school high school and college, I was a student-athlete. I understood the importance of representing my town in a positive light, and I always felt supported. by the community. Over my lifetime, the town has made significant improvements to athletic facilities, demonstrating a commitment to the next generation and their access to safe and updated facilities. The new facilities also demonstrate the commitment to providing access to healthy, safe, and fun places for students to come together and to use their time constructively.

West warwick is an affordable place to live and my neighborhood is quiet. Other neighborhoods in this town have bad roads, dirty homes, and uncleanly streets. Business in the area suffer and dont have much curb appeal. West warwick does, however, have plenty of stores at my convenience within a small distance. I would not prefer to raise a family here unless it were in my neighborhood. It is close by to route 2 giving you access to the highways and big stores, therefore the convenience is prime.
West warwick is a small town, everyone knows each other and the people here are friendly. There are many events hosted for local residents during the summer time and holidays. My favorite part of the year is the Christmas lighting they do in the very tiny downtown we have. It's almost magical the whole town gets together for this moment to wait for the giant tree to lite, absolutely beautiful! One thing I'd like to see change in west warwick is a little more diversity.
