Really nice place but filled with old people. It's a great place to live your twilight years, but if you're finding a house for your kid there's almost no other kids living nearby.
Meadowbrook is set a mile off of the busy Highway 280. It has lots of places to eat and shop in very close proximity. We have excellent school systems and a YMCA less than 5 miles down the street. Meadowbrook is a family oriented area of the city of Birmingham.
