Silverwood is a very nice suburban area in Charlotte. The area is good for families, very peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. Homes are affordable and the area is developing nicely.

The area that I live in is not as bad as other areas. When I began living here, it was a very quiet and peaceful environment but, now it isn't as peaceful. There are more children in the area and some of them are choosing to partake in criminal activities around the neighborhood, these activities not only affects my neighbors but also affects my family as well. If I could choose to live here again I would but if I could also choose a different area I would do that as well.
I personally loved this area when we first moved here nine years ago. It was quiet and less populated. Now there are more neighborhoods being built and population is increasing. I like it to be more quiet with less traffic!
