Living in the area of Martha Lake is great! You have easy access to highways, roads, and the I-5 freeway. Additionally, the lake is nearby allowing you to go on walks, swimming, or just relax. The neighbors and residents here are all friendly as the area is very secluded. There is a local Martha Lake Airport Park which opens up to a skateboard park, soccer field, baseball field, a small playground, and even rock climbing. Also, there are trails that people can walk their dogs or ride their bikes too. Martha Lake is a safe, friendly neighborhood for visitors to come and see.

Everybody keeps to thenselves, overall very quiet except on holidays with all of the fun fireworks. Not a united community but nice culdesacs and easy access to other cities
Though I know that there are areas that could be improved, the police in our area do their jobs well and care for this community. There is some graffiti, vandalism, and other crimes, but for the most part I feel safe in my community. The police are good at informing the people in the area if there is a criminal nearby so that we can be aware.
