    Brookside Reviews

    The area of Brookside is a quiet laid back town. People do need a vehicle to stay in this area. They have a great school system for the kids. The school systems are very diversity. The police department is on their jobs to keep trouble makers out of the community. The community is very safe for kids to grow up.
    Review Brookside
    There are many stores within 15 minutes. There are many restaurants ranging from sit-down to fast food. The convenience stores are locally owned and therefor very shopper friendly.
    Necessities are available, but they aren't always fairly priced.
