Local Reviews

It's close by to a shopping center and a lot of restaurants. It's right by a major highway, 10 min drive to downtown.

I love the green spaces and opportunity to recreate outside. Lots of walking or hiking paths etc. we have an amazing view too

Our neighborhood is literally 7 minutes from our work office. The schools both kids go to are also literally 7 minutes away. We have quick access to IH-35 and 183.

The neighborhood is a newer built community in the area. It is very close to major highway access. It is near some of the best featured areas in the city.

Beautiful views all around me. Very friendly actively social neighbors. I am happy with my neighborhood

I like how I can mind my own business and skate whenever I want without anyone complaining because everyone is really nice to each other.
