I have loved growing up in Providence Plantation. It is a safe community with a great school district and great people. Providence Plantation truly has a family feel to it. The neighborhood also has lots of scenery near it with the Providence Nature Reserve right behind the neighborhood. I would like to see the implementation of sidewalks in the neighborhood. Many roads have curves that are hard to see around and someone in our neighborhood recently got hit by a car due to a reckless driver. Other than this I have loved growing up in Providence Plantation and would recommend moving here to anyone.

Providence Plantation is a beautiful yet quiet neighborhood that I am glad to call home. It is located only about one mile away from my school, Grace Academy. I have lived here for approximately three and a half years.
Due to the high amount of families in Charlotte, it's generally very safe. However, crime can't be avoided entirely. South Charlotte's largest problem would be drug abuse and addiction.
