    Belvedere Park Reviews

    It all starts with county government. I am embarrassed of DeKalb county. Until the county is purged (again!) there will not be the changes needed to improve DeKalb. Schools are terrible where I live and instead of getting better, they are simply closing. I would love to see the area improve, but until residence start taking responsibility for the way they treat where they live it will not change. There are a lot of low-income, close-minded individuals who treat the area poorly. I am not sure how to even start to change this. BUT, I love my neighborhood, I love my neighbors, and I love my house!
    Review Belvedere Park
    Neighbors are friendly they say good morning etc . We have neighborhood events and parties.

    We look out for each other and our properties. There are more and more families and young couples moving in.

    Heat fir walking, biking, tennis courts and pool at Park that is kept up and clean. 12 minutes from

    Little 5 points and Inman park 5 minutes from downtown Decatur. Value of houses have increased since I've lived here my property bassinet has increased by 70,000 and that's less than 3 yrs. Great area.
    My overall experience of this area is a memorable one. Despite the living conditions or unemployment that I might be unaware of, I have learned a lot from staying in this area. The people are wonderful, so I have learned so much from these people.
