We are currently(2 years now) living in a gated community with cameras, security officers that patrol and police officers that live on-site. We have never had a problem with anything. It is quiet and safe!

I have lived in the Broadmoor/Sherwood area for 14 years. The neighborhood has been a peaceful place to live and our neighbors are very friendly. I had never had any major problems with the neighborhood. The streets, however, in some areas like Goodwood Blvd and Sherwood Forest Blvd are in rough condition. It is not pleasant driving through these streets.
I grew up in the Broadmoor/Sherwood neighborhood in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and I can honestly say that I would not change a single thing about that area during that time. It was an absolutely wonderful place to live, and there were ALWAYS lots and lots of other kids my own age. We went to all of the local schools, which were also wonderful, and it just seems that it was the best place in the entire city to be. I wish things could be like they were then and I sure do miss all the good times I had there. When I drive thru that neighborhood now, it just makes me sick to my stomach. Slowly, but surely, the entire area is degenerating. I wish that everyone could have such a wonderful childhood as I had, and if I had known then, what I know now, I would simply have REFUSED to grow up. I would still be living at home with my parents.
