I like the close nit community feeling of the neighborhood since our houses are all so close together. I also like how this neighborhood is near Denver but not completely in the city. I also love to nearby shopping center because it's walkable. I do not like how the nearby shops are all very expensive and I also do not like the amount of construction in the neighborhood. Finally, I am not happy with the new high rises in the community.

My neighborhood has great schools, restaurants, businesses and other activities within a close proximity. It is also extremely safe and recognized as a great neighborhood!
I like the setting, as well as the scenery. However, I do wish the city and schools in that area are more diverse.
