I had lived in Kennedale and worked for the Kennedale I.S.D. for 10 years and found the city to be safe and friendly. You can call the police and they respond very fast. It is known today as the forgotten city. I city still has that county feel to it even though you are just a few minutes away from the major highways. I still own my property of 5 acres and rent it out, and the people that has rented feel in love with Kennedale. Builders and people need to look at this forgotten city and see that it will be a beautiful city one day, but the prices will be so high just like Mansfield.
