Local Reviews

I have great neighbors that are friendly and quiet and cause no troubles. They like to watch out for each other.

We go to the park, as well as walmart and Farrellis. Farrellis is a pizza place that enjoy eating at along with the mayan.

i like going to the mall since it is nearby and I also like going to the park with my dog since it isn't very high either

The HOA is very active. They have lots of BBQ and egg hunts at the neighborhood park. Trick or treating is fun.
