Top Public Schools Serving Carney
Carney specifically is a quaint family oriented community tucked in the less desirable Parkville area, (IMHO). Equally mixed with retirement aged folks as well as young families. School system seem to be above average. Many places to dine and the downtown area is minutes away if that's your bag. My neighbors are very friendly and down to earth and for the most part we all help each other when needed. We probably will not retire in this area one day as we are attracted to a more rural and less hectic lifestyle but a great place for now.
I loved living in this neighborhood. My grandparents lived across the street and my uncle around the corner. There were several kids when I was younger and it was safe for us to run all over the neighborhood. Most of the people were very kind, helping each other during snow storms and hurricanes. We had a built in pool and a basketball net, lacrosse goal and swings and giant sandbox. It was a great place for my friends to hang out and relax and have fun. I didn't want to move away but we had no choice. If I could move back there I would, but it would be hard to see my old house.
There wasn't much crime in the area as far as I know. Every few years someone would go through the neighborhood and break into cars or work trucks or in sheds. We were off the main road so I would see police drive by often, and sometimes they would loop through our street. I never had any safety concerns.
