Indian Head Park Reviews

2 reviews
Indian Head Park is a very small suburb. The homes are reasonably priced and the neighborhoods are generally quiet. We are seeing more families move in and improvements made to the homes that have been here for a long time. W

This town is resting on very very very old ordinances and rules. They do not allow fences for example. There are significant drainage issues in many of the area forcing residents to take on extreme costs and measures to protect themselves from flooding. The village does NOTHING. I would like to give this area a much higher rating, but Im sorry to say that for the taxes you pay it is not worth it.
