El Sobrante is a nice area to live in. The people here are very nice and the atmosphere is very lively, however, I wished they could have built sidewalks for people to walk. Ever since my family moved here, there has not been any sidewalks at all and that is very disappointing the most because if you go on the other side there is a lot of sidewalks for people to run or walk. In the future, I really want to see more sidewalks because I am scared when I see kids falling down on the rocks and getting hurt.
I love the location were I live, it is up on a hill and its nice and quiet. We have a great view of the hills and its beautiful seeing the sky at night. We also get a lot of random wildlife which can silly to see. Ive encountered many deer, skunks, raccoons, turkey, and even a cayote once.
