Balch Springs Reviews
Balch Springs is a city that is alive and almost magical as a city goes. What I like the best is the diversity . Diversity is our strength! The schools are great also. They pride themselves on the stellar ESL, free breakfast and lunch programs. We could have never have had all of this if it was not for the diversity we have striven for. Also the streets are drive-able in a lot of the areas of our city and there are a ton of auto care facilities that are ready to serve scattered through out not to mention the mom and pop restaurants and mom and pop convenience stores. The thing I will miss the most about balch springs is waking up to roosters crowing on my street and the music that emanates from the our resident's front yards and garages. Especially on weekends and Holidays. What I don't understand is why co-workers friends and family never want to visit.
All my neighbors are very friendly! They are very helpful. The only thing I would possibly change is adding lights. My neighborhood is beautiful, all it needs is a few more lights down the street and everything would be perfect for me!
Balch Springs is a decent community overall. Very working-class area. The best kept and family-oriented neighborhoods are zoned to schools in the Mesquite Independent School District, which has a solid reputation.
