I love Woods Cross. It's not too big, there are nice developments happening and most of all, it's very very safe. I believe our crime rate is less than 1%. We have lovely bike trails and hikes nearby. The cost of living is quite low and yet most of the city is well maintained and quite lovely. We have several nice parks such as hogan and miller's park. However there are a ton of mosquitos in the summer! Everyone is quite nice and we have access to everything one could need. I however don't love the air quality and huge refineries that we have.

I love living in Woods Cross. I have had a good experience with my neighbors and the schools in the area. I am very connected with others in my neighborhood. The commute to other areas for work and college are decent. There is a train station nearby which makes commuting a little easier. There are several parks where kids can play and be safe. Housing can be more expensive in this area, but it is much more affordable than the Bountiful area. There is no much diversity in my neighborhood. My only wish is that there were no refineries and long freight trains. The refineries can make the air bad in the area, especially when it gets cold outside and winter come.
Woods Cross is a family friendly suburb with quick access to the I15 corridor making commuting very easy. The elementary school is close and within walking distance but appears overcrowded. As with most of the Salt Lake Valley, Real Estate prices and rent is high.
