Moved here last summer from another south city neighborhood. Favorite place I’ve lived so far. Great community vibe, beautiful architecture and convenient location. Benton Park has come a long way in the past 10 years and I’ve had no issues with safety.
Benton Park is a mostly young neighborhood and offers some amazing amenities. Everyone is very friendly here and the atmosphere is one of inclusion.
