My family moved to Wildwood in 2016 and it was the best decision I could have made. The Rockwood School District that serves the Wildwood community is awesome. There is a lot of outdoor activities that Wildwood has to offer from their parks, biking and walking trails etc. Plenty of places to shop and eat. This is a great place to raise a family!
The people here are loyal and honest! A sense of family is everywhere! Neighborhoods are always clean and homes are well kept. It’s always a pleasure to walk the neighborhood!
