We have an awesome city park, it just needs a bit of TLC. Business district is starting to pick up and will make it much better. Houses are cheap but are going up in value very fast.

Really love the large homes and historic architecture. Riverview Park is nearby and offers mountain biking, a working Observatory, new soccer field, and free movies and concerts on summer weekends. We will soon have new restaurant and coffee shop and have great bakery (Schorr's).

The neighbors are great and the neighborhood is very diverse in terms of people and income / occupations.

And we are very convenient to pro sports, live theater, live music venues near downtown (3 miles south) and to regional shopping areas 3 miles north. New bike lanes that are planned for next couple of years will make it even easier to bike commute and do recreation riding.
Observatory Hill is a great neighborhood with great neighbors. We have new restaurants going in and a new turf soccer field. And Riverview Park is a great amenity. There are bike lanes being built into the neighborhood, too. It is also convenient to downtown and the North Shore, so you can decide to go to a ball game and be there in 10 minutes. The architecture is wonderful with many homes built around 1900.
