There are numerous reasons why Piedmont is a great place to live. So many reasons, in fact, that it’s easy to see why the consumer advocacy website NerdWallet once heralded Piedmont as “The Best Town in Oklahoma for Young Families.” Piedmont residents enjoy the delightful and unusual combination of a small-town atmosphere coupled with an amazing array of amenities. There are parks, trails, playgrounds and nearby places to shop along the NW Expressway corridor. Fun times are easily accessible for everyone who lives here. In addition to the many opportunities for family entertainment, both indoors and out, Piedmont also boasts a nationally-recognized school system. Consistently rated among the top in the state, Piedmont Schools have a history of excellence and achievement. And now, thanks to the passage of a 2016 $71 million bond issue, its schools are in the process of improving even further. Despite its peaceful rural setting, Piedmont offers quick and easy access to multiple urban areas. It’s a snap to commute from this community to a variety of employers in and around Yukon, Edmond, and Northwest Oklahoma City. And even when they’re not heading to or from work, Piedmont residents have quick and easy access to the many conveniences available in those nearby metropolitan areas, all of which are less than 30 minutes away. A variety of shopping options, restaurants, services, financial institutions, and entertainment venues are available right there in Piedmont as well as a short, simple drive away. It’s little wonder that Piedmont residents often feel they have the best of all worlds: a small, close-knit community, with a peaceful rural setting, a fantastic school system and all the employers, amenities and conveniences that nearby major metropolitan areas can offer.
