Crime & Safety
My husband and I have lived here for only a couple of years, but we have thoroughly enjoyed out time living here and plan to stay in this area. Our kids are both starting in the school district this year in the early learning programs and our experience so far with the schools has been wonderful! Medina, in relation to location, is perfect in many ways because it is connected to West Plymouth and Wayzata which contain everything a family could need or want as far as stores, groceries, and things for families to do in the area!
I think that overall this is an extremely nice place to live. It is safe, beautiful, removed enough from the day-to-day chaos but still connected enough to feel like you are close to society. I think that sometimes the neighborhood interactions are limited, but that may be because there aren't many people my age living here. There seem to be more and more families with young kids moving in, which will be nice to see the parks being used more frequently. I have enjoyed living here, but at least in this neighborhood it is a little bit too "ritzy" feeling for me, and I would not choose to live here again myself. My family loves it though, so I cannot complain at all.
The area in which I currently reside is an incredibly safe, quiet, and peaceful environment. I would surely consider moving back to this development when I have a family of my own.
