    Local Reviews

    I like how each house has their parkway, my favorite business is the Starbucks next to my house. I like to go bowing and go out to eat with my friends and catch a baseball game!

    Our community is lively, with ripe fruits and golden leaves. The leaves on the big trees in the community are already yellow, but it is still as strong as before, and the children who are tired from playing are resting under it. Cool; there are many kinds of small flowers in our community, some have withered, some petals are almost gone, and some are blooming with beautiful smiling faces.

    Our community holds a variety of community activities, activities are very interesting and meaningful, I like to participate in.

    There is a very delicious cafe at the gate of the community. I like to go to the cafe to have afternoon tea with my friends

    I often go to the community activities with my family, there are many activities, and they are very interesting.

    My favorite community is an ironic and mature community with complete surrounding facilities. There are clothes, food, housing and transportation within three kilometers. There are also many delicious restaurants with rich taste. Schools, hospitals and police stations are nearby, and life is carefree and comfortable.
