Crime and Safety is extremely important and this area take most measures on making sure the community is well protected. The sense of safety is very good in this area because there are hardly any crimes committed here. The police are seen at times but they aren't really visible but show up quickly when a crime is committed so they are very reliable. Surveillance camera are set up in the area which is great to keep an indirect eye on the community protecting it from any harm.
Their are plenty recreational centers in my neighborhood with gyms in them . Some of my neighbors walk their pets. Their are also some people jogging.
