Jackson Reviews

1 review
Family friendly and safe. Great for families and close to schools. Lived here for 17 years and love it.
Good places for fast food and parks for outdoor activities including biking, splash pad, community center, disc golf, volleyball, softball, baseball and skate park. Stores, post office, and other offices. We have raised 3 boys here and would not change a thing. Close to work and the freeway.
