    Budd Lake Reviews

    I really like living in Budd Lake. We live across the street from an amazing park with trails, baseball fields, soccer fields, a pond, memorials, a water feature for summer time, and a playground area for kids. The easy access is awesome! I did not give 5 stars because it is a little far out from places I like to go, but it is a peaceful place to live.
    Review Budd Lake
    The community here in Delaware is okay. Since I am more of a city person Delaware seems very boring because there isn't much that happens here. The college I attend (Delaware State University) is really great! The people are helpful, friendly, and kind.
    I would like to see the the roads get fixed, because some of them need repair due to the previous snowstorms we've had.
