I rate this neighborhood great because it is very family/pet friendly, we do have engagements and somewhat of events. The community is not too bad everything seems okay when it comes to the community coming together and hosting something. Then again there are a lot of elderly people in this area. There is quite a mixture of elder and youth.
My community likes to have block parties, and invite their family, friends, and other members from the neighborhood.
