Why Families Love Byron Center, Dorr, Wyoming and Wayland…
I love living in BC! Very family friendly community, amazing public schools and teachers, everybody knows somebody and we all have each other’s backs! Love my Byron Center family, especially my subdivision, Planters Row, family!!!
Dorr is great because everyone keeps to themselves. 😉
We live in Wyoming and love it! We have beautiful parks, well-equipped playgrounds, and a cheery splashpad. We host the yearly Pumpkin Walk Festival where all the kids get to decorate and take a small pumpkin home for Halloween. Don’t forget the free Tuesday night summer concert series at Lamar Park! We have miles of trails to walk and spend time in nature. There are green spaces everywhere. We also have the Wyoming branch of the public library-my favorite branch to take the littles for story time. It’s bright and cheerful and has cool child-focused play areas and craft spaces. There are even built-in reading nooks in the walls with windows for daydreaming about the places you’re visiting in your books. One of the best things? We’re close enough to get to Grand Rapids and all the wonderful things it offers, but we’re able to maintain that smaller town feel.
Byron Center: We have an incredible arts program! In addition to our fantastic H.S. productions, The Van Singel Fine Arts Center hosts tons of great shows, productions and events all year. Amazing schools and genuinely loving teachers/staff, parades, community days with fireworks, chalk art festival and, um….Tanger! ?
