Ranch Penasquitos is a extremely safe neighborhood friendly and accepting of everyone. There are plenty of parks and community activities that make it a great place to live. Such a great place to live!
These apartment complexes are at the end of a long road that's connected to the main boulevard. We are dug into more of a hillside which creates this valley like landscape. The place is surrounded by a lot of nature like different trees, bushes, flowers, and small critters like birds. For apartment complexes, this place is fairly nice and it sure is a quiet neighborhood. Throughout the years, security has been getting stricter but, I believe it's getting too strict. Sure, the crime rates have been lower than ever (from 1% - 0%) in the past year or so but, it really restricts how we can just enjoy our own freedom and that humble feeling of home.
