Local Reviews

It's quiet and safe with a country setting. My dog has room to run and we have room for company for gatherings without bothering anyone

There is nothing I Jair about it . Favorite business is Rosario's . I don't take family here bc it isn't nice

The neighborhood is very rich in history. There are also many restaurants and local businesses in the neighborhood. I lIke going to the libraries with my children.

I like that my home is right near the highway can jump on to get to locations faster. Plus it's dog parks for me to take my dog in the morning

The movie theaters, library, fitness facility, and food service areas rely on solid facades, while the farmers market and shops interlaced with gardens bring in natural light through transparent ones

The park in our community is one of the most famous places in this area. The scenery here is good, the air is fresh, and the residents come here every day. I often take my family to take a walk here
