Pontchartrain Park Reviews

I enjoy living in the Ponchatrain Park neighborhood because it is safe and it is friendly. I love the fact that houses are being built from the ground up and quickly being sold. The Ponchatrain Park neighborhood is a 15 minute commute to downtown New Orleans. I also love the newly golf course that is located in the Ponchatrain Park neighborhood. The nearby businesses are beneficial as well.

The Overall area is great. I live in an area where there is access to a park and Recreational Activities. However the overall conditions of the city is not a great place to raise children
