My view of living in Olney community is peaceful and the neighbors quite friendly. I've live in this neighborhood for approximately 19 years, and I had not experienced any disturbance or had any problems with the community. There are two recreation centers that help and support youths when they retire from school and during the summer, they have counselors that support the summer programs to occupy their time while school is closed. My experience living in this community is great, and I plan to continue to live here until it's time to move to my next destination.
The community is very diverse and active in participating and creating events to bring the community together and make it better as neighbors! They are kind-friendly activities for students and opportunities for the community
