No one seems like they can truly “escape” from the many great things that Terrace Park has to offer. Safety, community, courtesy, care for one another, and love are only a few great things about this place. That is what draws so many happily married couples back to this community like moths to a lantern.
Of course those of you who live in Terrace Park as young adolescents are thinking “there is no way in H-E double hockey sticks I’m ever moving back to Ohio, I’m going to college as far away as possible and never turning back.” This sudden burst of wanting to never return is only because of the great things the community provides parents.
Think about it, where else can you let your kids roam around everyday of summer and just expect them to come home to engulf whatever you’ve whipped up for dinner?
It’s not just the safety though that makes TP a parental unit’s and/or legal guardian’s paradise. Having your children grow up in such a welcoming community can teach them what it really means to be accepted and wanted by every person around.
Things are not always fun and games though if you’re a teenager. You are encumbered with responsibility, and anything you mess up on is known by the entire community within 2 hours of the incident’s occurrence. So it’s no wonder every cognizant teen in the TP area wants to GTHO (get the heck out) ASAP (as soon as possible).
Later though, as it happens with every generation while they’re away at college, they have this sort of epiphany where they realize how special Terrace Park is, and what it means to them.
I’ve seen it with my mother, her mother, and her mother before that. Not to mention the countless names and faces we see throughout the high school who’ve come back. All in all Terrace Park has so many great qualities, and although not every teenage hooligan might realize it now, one day they will see what makes TP one of a kind.
