Poets Square Reviews

I grew up in Poets Square and it gave me a wonderful childhood. Surrounded by good public schools and buzzing businesses, it was the perfect little niche. I could attend my high school classes at RUHS and walk to Lucky Wish Bone or Crave Cafe after the bell. It's safe, quiet, and homey.

It's a great central location, close to so many great local restaurants & businesses. There is neighborhood involvement, yearly activities, Roof-top Santa event, Halloween party with nearby church. I love the mid- century modern brick houses. Affordable houses.
