What Renters Like and Dislike About Fort Dodge

The neighbors.its a good place I like it alot......................it's good all the time ...... . . . ...

There is a school near by with a park for the kids to play. The hospital is close. The central business is very close as well

Thete are lots of kids thatmy husbands soncan play with, also schools and parks in walking distant, Everyone minds there own business

The only thing that is going on is the wrong person. Typical burger and burger place right next door.

I like that there is a park with a baseball field within walking distance. Most the people keep their yard and home looking nice. Neighbors get along well with each other and look out for one another.

The woods the animal life you see in the morning it by a church by outside of town to get out of town
