What I like about Cypress is that it's a small city where basically everyone knows everyone. There are many great schools and places where you can eat and enjoy yourself. Our city is small, but we are close to many attractions such as baseball stadiums and amusement parks. Also, our city has many youth sports where you can learn and grow!

I have lived in Cypress, California for as long as I can remember, and I have always felt safe. While it may be dangerous to go out alone at night, I have never felt endangered. There has always been an attitude of "It's Cypress so it's fine." Cypress is smaller compared to the surrounding cities and its police station is relatively close to all parts of the city. Education and diversity is strong in Cypress and I am proud to be a resident of it. Whenever I go out in the car, the streets are always clean and people always seem to be exercising. Cypress is lovely and Cypress is my home.
The most diverse and safe community ever. There is a police station near Cypress community, and you hardly ever see a crime or a police chase. very affordable and elegant looking homes. Cypress is a unique geographical location, because its surrounded by prominent educational institution and high schools, and shopping grocery stores. Cypress is very welcoming and people are always there to help each other. Our neighbor is so great and nice, that he always brings our trash cart for us after they have been out.
