What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Garfield Heights

It's close to our freeway system. We're next to Cleveland. We had an Arthur Treacher's until it closed in 2022.

The metro parks are unique. Don't really have a favorite business around there. And going to the parks for hiking is a good family event.

Neighbors, community, close to downtown , small and rural this all describes my town and its ability to bring the community together

I like that we live really close to our school and that there are lengthy of hospitals and police and a lot of food places

Living next door to an elementary school means it's quiet in the evenings and during the summers. The library is closeby and so are some good restaurants.

I love going to apple bee's,the library,the dary mount store,and i love going to the parks with my family and friends because it brings really really amazing memories and also i love going to my friends houses because we can talk and trust each other about anything in the world also if we had more activities to do in the community we would make a lot of money by helping.
