Setting & Lifestyle

Because of many things, Garden City is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Garden City a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Garden City has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Garden City’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Garden City has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Garden City a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Garden City is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Garden City, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 98.44% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

As is often the case in a small town, Garden City doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
