Local Reviews

We live at what used to be the edge of the city--the community was designed for summer fun along the river and our place was built on the site of a former amusement park and enormous pool. We can easily walk to at least seven restaurants and bars (we don't drink) with a lot of varitey--Chinese, American, Mexican, Lebanese etc. There are specialty groceries, upscale grocery and supermarket within walking distance. There is a library, park, rec center and swimming pool.

It's close to several bus lines and grocery stores/markets. There is an unofficial dog park, which is very useful since we don't have a lawn. There is a great Chinese restaurant within a five minute walk.
