I use to live at Gonosald pope park for a long time. It was very open and accessible to th general public easily. Cook outs, celebrations, even school or extracurricular sport events are held here.

I really enjoy the fairly new Pennisula town Center outlet mall. It's a great place with very modern but well design buildings which make it easy to locate shops. There are even new unique restaurants within to give the area a pop of flavor.
The neighbors always keeps an eye on suspicious activities going on and informs others.. It not uncommon to know or even see a police officer near by. The police department is very close by.
