I love going for walks with my friend.love to go out to eat with my friend.stores are close enough to Walk to

What's unique will be 5 restaurants on one block a park right up the street from a grocery store in also I like going to the parks cause they renewed them which was nice

I have lived in it for years and its comfort. Local restaruants are Lino's. Its close to main stores

It's close to the mall and has a lot of shops near by there is a park close to but I've never seen it

None. In a shopping cart around the block because I cannot walk. Volunteers cleaning and stronger litter patrol..
