Brock Hall Reviews

17 reviews
All Categories
It's a nice and quiet suburban area. Not much happens around here but it's the best place I know to move to. They are an ample amount of schools and bus stops that make it convenient for both parents and kids. I've lived in Brock Hall for 12 and a half years and so far everything is great. There's plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors and bike riding is safe and adventurous because of the scarce amount of cars coming by. The only downside to Brock Hall would have to be how long it takes to get to a plaza or mall. The quickest one is about 7 minutes away and it can be a real drag if you are trying to quickly get something in the night knowing how long it would take. Overall it's a great place to live and everybody is very friendly.
I've lived in this area for 12+ years and can say that the overall quality of life is okay. As a student, I can say that the schooling system is not so great academically, but students leave high school and know how to build connections and adapt to their environments wherever they go. Violence is fair, not too often do crimes occur. The general atmosphere is decent. Virtually everyone is friendly which I find to be very important in a community.
Many folks pick-up their pet's debris and stool. Most neighbors attend the local, community events, such as health fairs, etc.
