Parkside Reviews

3 reviews
Most of the people in this community are supportive. Not all people are bad. Most residents here are really engaged in community events and volunteering. When people move here, they stay for about 3-4 years before moving again; not really because they want to, but because they can't afford living elsewhere.

This area has improved. It's much more peaceful than a few years ago. However, if I had the chance to go back to my old home and move here again, I would not have chosen this area nor city. I would rank Camden as probably the second worse city to settle in (Philadelphia being the first). Although, I do believe there's a chance that the youth will make an improvement for this area in the future.
Over time I've witnessed murders, people get hurt badly.. and as I've gotten older it would seem to get better but in all reality its up to the people.
