Lake Park Reviews

3 reviews
Lake Park is one of the nicer neighborhoods in the area. It is really pretty and walking friendly. There is a tennis court, basketball court, a pool (with a swim team), parks, churches, even a school and day care. There are festivals throughout the year, and they constantly have smaller events sprinkled throughout the year. There are a lot of families living here, so a lot of kids.

I have been very fortunate to live in such a family friendly and safe environment my whole life. From social events, restaurants, schools, churches, and swim team this neighborhood really has been home to me. There are so many great qualities that make Lake Park such a great community. I have never felt any type of danger thanks to our very own police officers, I have met some of my best friends though the swim team and overall it's a great place to live and call home.
I would prefer a little more police presence
