What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Grand Island

It's comfortable. I like taking my kids down to the park down the road which also has a kid pool. They could swim there all day.

Shopping is convenient, go out for a walk after dinner in the evening, but also can exercise in the park, physical fitness, can have a comfortable environment with the family

We like going to the parks or bike trails. Also have a lot of activities for families in town. Roller skating and bowling are popular here

There is a park down the street from us. Some fast food restaurants are in close walking distance. Schools aren't to far from the house

The people that live around us. Friendly happy local store is close and Dairy Queen ice cream close for childresm

I like to go to the school park to play basketball and soccer. Sometimes i walk my dog around if im with someone.
