Boulder Hill Reviews

7 reviews
All Categories
My siblings really enjoy the schools they attend. Some of them walk to and from school, and we do not have to worry about their safety because the neighborhood is really safe. The atmosphere is very peaceful and serene. The neighbors are very nice. The playground areas are safe as well. The only problem is that we live near a very busy street, so we must monitor very closely my siblings when they cross the street.
Review Boulder Hill
I was born and raised in Boulder hill ,Oswego. Some people in Oswego are big headed and look down on people in Boulder hill. People in both communities live here for long periods of time.
The stores were walkable distance and very friendly people there. Also, the movie theater is close by and on the main road so finding it was no trouble.
