The town is overall friendly and nice. There is a beautiful park with surrounding baseball fields, walking path and a hill. Several of new, beautiful houses are being built that look really nice from the outside. They are constantly doing several of things to improve the community.

Great town with a lot of diversity. I have lived in this town for over ten years and it was one of the safest environments I've been. Being from the Chicago area we experienced a lot of violence, but once I moved to Lynwood I felt much safer. The public school in the area was amazing. I received a great education there where I made some amazing friends and met some amazing people.
I lived in Lynwood for 23 years. It very nice and quite nothing major really happens. As long as I lived here it was a great place but then they took out a lot of things for the children to do so now it’s not so great no more. The manger at the front in Alpine is too much. I enjoying staying here but I would like to move n see how the view would be somewhere Else!
