Safe, diverse, beautiful and well-maintained! We enjoy the walking trails, the fishing ponds (we catch catfish, bass, and sunfish mostly!) and our neighbors.

Personally, I've loved living in Atascocita. Coming from a far more unsafe neighborhood made me very apprehensive and distrusting of strangers and sometimes even neighborhoods. But Atascocita restored that faltering hope. People here are kind and benevolent and look out for one another. There are seldom incidents (if any) where I've said im unsafe where I live. Additionally there is everything you might need in a relatively short vicinity. The school districts push students academically and in respective electives. I'm proud of where I live sincerely and would ask anyone looking for a place of residence to give this town a good look.
Atascocita has improved a lot lately. The neighborhood park near my house has been cleaned up and repaired, the Sunset parking lot has been repaved, and my school is having new classrooms built as I type this. However, there's very little that's special about this place. The houses have no character, there aren't any fun places to bike to, and there's trash everywhere. There are also some aggressive dogs that have learned to break their fence, so that's not great, and parts of the area flood during tropical storms. We have also had one instance of gun violence and frequent problems with vandalism.
