This area is very safe and a lot of young families live, and are continuing to move here. There are many parks in the area as well as stores and shops near by. It is still very close to everything but without being in the middle of the busyness of the city. Everyone in the neighborhood is very friendly and people do a good job of keeping their houses and yards looking nice.
There are security guards often in the neighborhood to ensure safety. Safety is rarely a concern. There are some minor car break-ins, but never any major crime.
