I went to school at Murphy my kindergarten through 2nd-grade years and I really enjoyed going to school there during that time. The teachers were very nice to us and I had a fun time there overall. Then in the summer of 2018 and 2019, I was a lifeguard at Murphy Creek and I really enjoyed being a lifeguard there. There are many good people there and I overall like the pool. It has one small and one big pool. Murphy Creek also has a golf course that is very nice. I always go there for the driving range and they have a very good golf shop and in that shop is a tavern where you can buy food. For their pool and tennis courts, only residents can be there, but the golf course and driving range is open to anyone.

Active community. Groups for everyone. Community garden. Monthly events like family bingo, movies at park. Holiday celebrations like Easter egg hunt, turkey trot, breakfast with Santa and forth of July bike parade.
The people who live in Murphy Creek are extremely nice and work well together, most of the time. There has been many violent situations that have happened in this neighborhood which does not make me feel safe.
