Local Reviews

Nothing it's pretty much like any other neighbourhood .there's really nothing unique about our neighbourhood

I like that it's a family neighborhood. I feel safe letting my kids play outside. There is also lots nearby.

I like that my few friends live close to me and I am able to walk to to see them as I do not have a vehicle

It is quiet and people maintain there properties well. It is far enough away from the city but close enough to drive to stores quickly.

That it is easier to get around places. Hospitals, doctors, stores all relatively close. That living on the outskirts does give my kids a yard to play in vs living in town there were only parking lots.
