Local Reviews

The neighborhood is an average neighborhood in the city. There isn't anything too special except for the fact that the neighborhood is gated and has security at the front entrance.

I kayak on the lake, bike the trails, and it's walkable with trees. It is convenient to the county as a whole. There is culture close by.

I wouldn't say it is unique. There are lots of stores, restaurants, schools, parks, movie theaters, churches etc nearby.

Seems like a special place. We walk our dogs to the park. Kids play all around. We see each other the stores or out to eat.

I like that it is near my favorite farm. My farm is far as it is but at least less than an hour. I really do not get out much though since I am online only with work.

It's a mix of people and there's some good food places but could be more around there's not enough different food places and could be more
