I have lived here my whole life and can confidently say that this is a wonderful neighborhood to live in! The people here are friendly, the town prides itself on the maintenance of the landscape so it looks clean and neat. Gilberts is also right by Randall Rd so it takes less than 15 minutes to get anywhere you need to go.

Very small and friendly neighborhood. Landscape staff work all seasons to keep the area clean and seasonally decorative. Plenty of pavements for walks, bikes, scooters, and such. Nearby forest reserve is easy to access too which offers more walkway paths, fishing sites, camping opportunities, etc. Many child activities like football, poms, cheerleading, basketball, and boy or girl scouts. Many adult activities too like soccer and golf. The downtown area has bars for those who need a drink.
Good! Everyone is so friendly. It's a very small suburb and I would prefer somewhere more well known, but I really like it
