A lot of animals around, quiet neighborhood. Very nice place to bike or hike or just walk and jog around. Great neighborhood overall

I love the open space, the wildlife, the feel of close to major freeways, jobs and activities yet feels far away from the noise of big city life.
A lovely place to grow up. Beautiful scenery and great schools. A small town, not much to do and can get quite boring.
