Local Reviews

Nearby parks and hiking trails. Clean well maintained yards. Nice stores within walking distance. Everyone is friendly and respectful.

There is nothing unique about my neighborhood. What was once a thriving and safe area has been over run by crime. Businesses have relocated and local restaurants have moved or shut down.

I like that they have plenty of parks where the kids can play. I love that they have grocery stores near by.

What unique about our neighborhood it's the people.we have 3 stores to shop from. And we also have a playground for kids

There are lots of families that live there. It's close to the interstate but still in a suburban area. It's close to several good restaurants.

Playing and food and walking and going to store the 3 block down the street cause that not far from where my house is
