Antioch Reviews

There are worse places to live outside of Antioch, California. The city has its fair share of Section 8 housing (stereotypical visions of unkempt lawns and dilapidated homes). Holidays like the Fourth of July and New Year’s seldom go by without sounds of gunshots ringing along with illegal fireworks. However, there are pockets of neighborhoods that cling to the idea of wholesome values. Neighbors who lookout for each other, people pick up trash off the streets, whether outside their home or not. I would like to see a revitalization of local government. My mother built a park in the downtown area of Antioch. My father help set up the playground and my little sister's hand-print was painted on the jungle-gym. A few years ago, some bored teenagers decided that it would be fun to set the playground on fire. I think there should be a focus to encourage community involvement and youth activities. Shaping up youth upbringing is going to help build Antioch into a stronger, safer community.
I love where I live, Antioch has great family friendly homes. It's full of new businesses. I feel much safer in Antioch then in concord where I used to live. The streets of Brentwood isn't far and a great place to go shopping. The prices of gas and homes in Antioch is cheaper than concord and Walnut Creek where it can cost much more. I love in a much more peaceful area where there aren't cars driving by your house all night, which is very nice.
In general I do like Antioch. I know that the schools need help. Crime has been an issue in the past. Lately, there has been less of a problem. The police department has stepping it up. I appreciate the local government and the community. People try to help out the local businesses. I can tell that everyone really wants to better the city.
