Lynwood wood is a nice town,very comfortable and quiet place to live.It has nice schools teachers and plenty of volunteers for the children. Safety is very important to Lynwood community, the police is always on alert if bad peoples come to town. The police is very helpful especially when a resident needs help. In the summer time we fill free to sit on the stairs in front of the house. Plenty of nice parks for everyone to come and enjoy. Lynwood is family oriented, people go to work and back home. The middle class can afford a nice place in Lynwood. Healthy living is very important, you can exercise and eat right daily. The commute is very close to any city job and the town is very diverse with different cultures. One thing I would like to see more African American police officers in Lynwood.

The neighborhood is safe, quiet and neighbors are friendly. It’s a suburb so there isn’t any nightlife. If you’re interested in nightlife you would have to travel to the city of Chicago which is about 30 minutes away. Lynwood is more family oriented. It’s a great neighborhood to raise a family in.
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.
