The neighborhood is very quiet and kid friendly. Everyone one looks out for each other and the community is like a little mini family. There are lots of parks for children and families to picnic and play games such as volleyball and tennis. There are also tons of options for dining and shopping. Its an overall amazing and safe community that is continuing to grow.

There is little serious crime in the area. However, my house has been egged and a window on my car was broken. Additionally, some graffiti pops up every now and then.
There really isn't a huge sense of community in this area. The schools nearby are okay, but they could be better.
