Local Reviews

The area is family friendly, schools, restaurants and stores are nearby. Neighborhood is quiet. There are parks nearby. There are a lot of outdoor activities to enjoy the outdoors.

It is a quiet neighborhood. It is close to restaurants and grocery stores and public transportation. I feel safe here.

I like to live in a place where there are lots of malls and shops if I can, because I am a big shopper and I like to go shopping when I have time

I feel safe now. The community is very busy I think there are many facilities in the community, and we should also add some places for the elderly to do activities I love this neighborhood. It's a family thing. Everything's for sale, you know

It is near really good schools in the district. There is a nearby coffee shop in walking distance. Local parks for walking dogs.
