I recently moved to the area, and I was timed about coming to a new area. But I am so glad that I did! This area is peaceful, friendly, quite and relaxing. My neighbors are so nice and everyone in this community helps each other. I have chosen to reside in an apartment and the reason why is because of the staff. The staff is so nice. They handle everything with respect and privately. There is no unnecessary drama. Everyone gets along. And I like that because I am a talker. I enjoy helping others. I have children and the area is kid friendly also the other children are well behaved and have a real nice time playing with each other. Stores are convenient and since the town is fairly small the workers practically know each other. Overall I am very pleased with my decision to move to Deer Park!

Deer Park is a great suburb. It has a fairly good public school system and is very interconnected. Although there is not much to do for fun in the city itself, it is close to Galveston and Houston. It is not hectic like Houston but it is close enough to the city to where you don't feel isolated. Although the plants that surround it make the air quality a little low sometimes, there has not been too many problems. The people are friendly, and the neighborhoods are great. For high school students, there is a lot of sports teams, clubs, and extracurriculars to participate in. Overall, it's a lovely place to live.
The city is very nice! They host a lot of public events and they are a lot of fun! The city is very clean and well-kept. I think they could plant more trees here and there, but other than that there's nothing really wrong. There is a lot of traffic on Center Street during the busy hours.
