Gardere Reviews

In my particular neighborhood, there isn’t nearly as much crime and disturbances as there used to be in the past. The community is growing into something beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately, the surrounding areas are deeply affected my crime and violence almost daily. Overall, my experience there has been pleasant and I would recommend it to others as a place to live and community to visit.

Gardere was the neighborhood where I grew up in Baton Rouge, La compared to when I was growing up the neighborhood has made several changes for the better by building baseball parks and football fields to keep the kids from the doing other thing in the neighborhood that could lead the down the wrong path. There has always been gun violence and drug in my neighborhood parents getting kids in extra curricular activities made a change along with positive influence from home. As a product I know how important it is keep busy and stay out of trouble in the end it helped me get heading life.
I would like to see higher amounts of police being alert on crimes. Also to see the landlords of all the apartments to be more active and allowing for residents to be happy and proud of where they are from.
