Overall it is a quiet neighborhood, there are parks that are nearby especially if you live near by the border of Maryland Heights. St. Louis has a pretty bad reputation that can also affect the suburban areas but in the Brigeton area there has been the minimum amount of crime. Our police force also takes about 3 minutes to arrive at any place so safety is not a main concern.
Love living here! Wonderful public schools and friendly neighbors! I have been living here over 10 years and am pleased to have been a part of this wonderful community! This area has great park options as well for the kids to enjoy!
