Local Reviews

Close to parks and foothills. Friendly neighbors. Very walkable. You can easily walk to a grocery store and resturants.

I like that the people are friendly. There are close walking paths nearby and there are good restaurants nearby.

There's a great sledding hill, and most are really responsible. A small park and well maintained houses.

I like that it's sometimes quiet, and you can hangout with friends at the park so you don't have to go far
