Local Reviews

I like that I know my neighbors and we're more like a close-knit everyone on my street I know because they've been in their homes 5 plus years

What is unique is that threes is a school by. And there is a bunch of food places near to.I thinks that I like going to the park with my family. It's fun there. There is a few bars near bt but I don't think people really go to them.

Its quiet sometimes, and is walking distance to and from stores including the one I work at. My friends and I usally go out of the neighborhood to do stuff

There's many places to walk to like the store downtown out to eat to the river or a 25-30min walk to the park

Everyone is friendly yet keeps to themself . Dog friendly . Quite most of the time and good location to grocery store and schools.

the things I like most about my neighborhood are the fact that we have stores that are nearby as well as a park. my community is very quiet
