    Browns Lake Reviews

    3 reviews
    My neighborhood is one of the best I know of. Everyone is very friendly, and there is really no crime at all. We have a very nice park just down the road, and Brown's Lake and several beaches are only a few blocks away. We live on the outskirts of town, so it is very quiet, but since Burlington is fairly small, it is only about a ten minute drive to downtown. I love where I live so much!
    Review Browns Lake
    I feel very safe in my neighborhood. I have lived here for 18 years, and I can only remember one or two times where there has been any kind of crime or violence. I feel safe walking the streets at night, and I know that if something were to happen, the police would arrive as soon as possible.
    There are few modes of public transportation. It is hit and miss.
