Hi, my name is Liam, I am 9 years old, and I am in the 3rd grade. These are things I like about Garden City.

Riverside

​1. I like The Riverside Hotel.

These are the things I like about the Riverside Hotel: 

  • I like the beds because they are so comfy!
  • The pools. There are 2 pools. One is inside, the other outside, and they are so fun!
  • The business.😊 [The people that work in all the businesses there.]

THE RIVER

2. I also like going to the river and eating sandwiches; the food is good in Garden City.

That’s it for now. These are the things that I like about Garden City the most!

Hi, my name is Hadleigh Bostron, I am 13, in the 7th grade, and these are the things that I like the most about Garden City.

Riverside

I like The Riverside Hotel.

One of my favorite things to do in Garden City is go to the Riverside Hotel. It is really a fantastic place to be. When you walk in there is a beautiful high ceiling with a huge chandelier. It’s got an awesome heated pool and delicious food. They even give you a cookie, and the band that plays while you are eating is cool. You can be an adult or be a kid and have fun there. That’s pretty much everything in Garden City though to be honest.

Mystic Cove

Another place I like to visit in Garden City is Mystic Cove. It’s a park with a big biking path but there is a trail that leads to a river. By that river is a bunch of large rocks and white as snow sand. You are like right in the middle of a city but in the middle of the wilderness with ducks and geese and frogs and crawdads.

Places to Eat!

I like that there are a lot of places to eat, and do fun things in Garden City, no matter how old you are or where you live.
