Local Reviews

Neighborhood is strictly for people 55 or older. I Like making new friends with similar interests and hobbies.

We have sidewalks throughout the neighborhood so it's very walkable. There's a shopping center nearby so it's easy to shop for groceries and other items. One of our favorite restaurants is in this shopping center and we visit it often.

This is an older family complex. It is very quiet and not many children, Everything is close. There are super markets and drug stores nearby

I really don't go out a night but I have good neighbors.yhw kids in my neighborhood are good kids .they play outside and their parents take walks with them .I take walks with my grandson everyday.

I like the supporting facilities around the community most, including restaurants, bars and entertainment facilities, which greatly improve the convenience of life. The surrounding supporting schools, police stations, high security, rich and complete catering taste, which is deeply liked by everyone

Seniors community and neighborhood. Favorite businesses within short drive. Fun activities within 20-60 minutes from home.
