"Engulfed by the much larger city of Greeley"

I've been to Garden City many times and never knew it wasn't considered Greeley until seeing a map recently. I have been here for several reasons, and I always seem to stop at the Subway as there isn't too much else in the way of healthy food options. This small town has only 235 residents, although it can get very busy since Hwy 85 runs through it. There are numerous businesses here and the homes that are located in Garden City tend to be on the small side with an average cost around $155,000, which is in line with the lower average household income of $20,224. Almost 37% of residents here live below the poverty rate.

The most common industry in Garden City is manufacturing, followed by accommodation and food services, then health care and social assistance. There are numerous restaurants on this side of town, although many of them lie within Greeley boundaries. There is also a rather large Lutheran Good Samaritan community which has senior housing as well as assisted living and skilled care just north of the city so for residents who work in health care they have this option or the nearby hospital.

Overall the looks of Garden City don't appeal to me as this seems to be a busy area with not much to offer in the way of clean and neat subdivisions or housing areas. There's a lot of businesses in the area and this part of town is just not appealing.
  • close to many amenities
  • a little run down looking
  • high poverty rate
