Woodland Park is a great town to live in, I have lived in this area for most of my life and definitely would not think about moving to any other town. The school system is pretty good and I believe I had a good education. The town itself is safe and I have never felt endangered and always feel comfortable walking around the town. I also feel that this town is very clean. The neighborhoods in this town are often quiet and peaceful which is one of this town’s great qualities. Overall I would recommend someone’s decision to move into this town

Great nature! You look out the balcony, and you can think yourself in a beautiful forest. Every day, I see deer, beautiful blue and red birds, and adorable hedgehogs. Not a bad choice for schools, either. Probably the best part? Sunny and beautiful, and great for growing plants!

xox, Woodland Park!

One objection - library needs more books for the kids section. Has A LOT though for the adult and the reference section. Beautiful place, though, and AMAZING staff!
Woodland Park is a pleasant place to live, I've never really had a problem with anything or anyone since I've lived here. It's your typical suburb, very quiet neighborhood with certain busy hubs. The areas around the strip malls and the main street are moderately active, never really any traffic trouble. Never had a safety issue either, very safe neighborhood with an active police force. The best part about my neighborhood would be the endless amount of parks we provide, we host tons of park trails and fishing spots. If anything I'd say it's the communities defining feature. Schools are okay, but they're in the process of improving every year.
