Cherokee Hills Reviews

3 reviews
I love our neighborhood! We have lived in Cherokee Hills for about 12 years. It’s quiet. You get to know your neighbors and people are kind. My husband lies to “neighbor” and the men folk stand out chatting about their yards, and fishing and who knows what. I am a wave and say hello kind of person. Everyone seems to care for their homes and take pride in keeping things nice and litter free. I love the individuality of our homes. Not like the modern day subdivision where every house is in the same three colors of beige. It’s a block party kind of neighborhood. Safe and secure with little crime. A lovely little park to walk to and take the kiddos or your dog. We moved from the Waldo area in KC, MO here because of crime and needing more space. I absolutely love it and we will be here for a very long time!
