What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Portage

I like that there are all amenities within a 10 minute drive. There are a lot of restaurants and places to shop.

There's parks but need to drive. Stores need to drive. Schools close vy. Stores are by higgway.b y

Most people keep their homes up. A nice quiet neighborhood Close to stores I like going to shipsheewanna take the grandkids

Pretty quiet, we have a nice house and yard, there are plenty of stores and restaurants very close by.

I enjoy our apartments. They are new with a 24 hour pool, gym and common area. Close to a park with food trucks and activities during the summer months.

Friendly neighbors, we could have a block party and lots of the neighbors would come out and socialize.
