Hennepin County Reviews

What I like about Hennepin County is that there is always a great energy from its residents. People interact with one another, I always see people smiling and when you approach someone on the street they do not ignore you or look the other way, they acknowledge your existence which I wish people did everywhere you went. despite the weather people find ways around the gloominess the winter may cause and are constantly putting together community events to keep its locals active. Hennepin County is a great place to live if you like engaging with your community and always having something exciting going on!

I have not had any problem with anyone yet in the neighborhood. I am not so sure about the crime rate around here, in my opinion, I would consider it low. In my perspective, the cleanness of the area would be average. As you might know, some places are messier than others. Not the best, but irritates me since I am fastidious.
They keep the streets clean with cleaning crew. Friendly people. They incorporate green space into city planning.
