The Westbrook Park section of Clifton Heights is a great old-time neighborhood with kids out playing and folks walking dogs. Stores, schools, churches, and bus stop are in walking distance. It's a short drive to the train station and major highways. The city meets the suburbs in this quaint and comfortable place that time has forgotten. Halloween is an event, with neighbors in costume calling greetings and giving out candy from their front porches. Walk to fireworks on July 4th. We love it here!

The Westbrook Park section of Clifton Heights is a diverse and friendly neighborhood. Walk to schools, parks, churches, and public transportation. Great starter homes or alternative to condos for downsizing seniors. Some homes with yards. Love it here!
As a minority living in Clifton Heights has been pleasantly ok. While I wish there were more things for children to do, cheaper swim clubs and better daycares. The overal experience hasn’t been bad. I will be looking to move soon; however, living here right now is an ok experience.
