Review Bainbridge Township
There are many ups and downs to living in Chagrin Falls Park. Overall, I would rather live in a different neighborhood within Bainbridge township. This is a neighborhood of mainly low income families and subsidized housing. Crime rates are slightly higher than surrounding neighborhoods because many new residents move here from low-income neighborhoods in Cleveland. The upside is that this neighborhood is part of a fantastic school system (Kenston Local School District). This provides an excellent educational route out of poverty though not everyone follows that path.
Growing up here has given me an interesting view on life. The diversity is low, and there isn't a lot to do after 9 pm on the weekends unless you leave the county lines; that just encourages creating and finding fun on your own. There are lots of job opportunities, a variety of places to eat, and plenty of bars.
Once again, there are ups and downs to this area. The police are visible some of the time and are alert and speedy if anything wrong happens. Crime is not a serious issue here but it is unusually prevalent with occasional street fights and drug transactions.
