I've lived in Como Park for more than 40 years. There is always something to do here. You can walk to the park and walk around the lake or visit the animals at the zoo, or go to the Conservatory to see and smell the beautiful flowers. All of this is free. Como is a great place to live. The people that live here are exceptional, always helping each other out. A lot of people that live here, grew up here. It's that great of a place!

It's a beautiful area with a lot to do. There are plenty of bike and walking trails that go around the neighborhood and the lake. There is the pavilion on the lake that offers different event and public restrooms, bike rentals and boat rentals. There is the zoo and conservatory that are both free and so much fun. We are minutes from restaurants and shopping, too.
I would love to see more Eco-friendly transportation and waste care in the city! I believe that keeping the city clean is very important, and having fuel-efficient transportation is a great way to help keep the city cleaner. Things like the Hybrid electrical buses and the Light Rail trains are great ways to help this! The atmosphere is very diverse, you will see a lot of different cultures and backgrounds in this city!
