South Park Reviews
I love the fun colors of all the historic houses and the cobblestone streets. However, my husband and I got fed up with all the crime and decided we’re better off selling. Most homes here don’t have driveways. You can’t park behind your home in the alleys because that’s where a lot of vandalism happens at night. Cars parked in the streets have also been drunkenly sideswiped and windows have been broken by thieves. SP has great options for food on Brown Street, but I was only comfortable walking there during the day. A few neighbors have been mugged walking their dogs so that doesn’t exactly make me feel comfortable as a woman. If you buy a home here I recommend you get a security system, befriend both of your neighbors and ask somebody to help you to join the private Facebook page. The FB page is helpful, neighbors are always keeping an eye out for each other. The homeless visitors and the teens that walk over from Xenia Ave are the ones that ruin this neighborhood for me.
This neighborhood is truly a GEM of Dayton. There is an active neighbor association which fosters relationships throughout the community, and the vibrancy of downtown Dayton is felt throughout this area.
This is a great historic neighborhood brought back from a hard past. It is still changing little by little, but it is definitely a prime place to be again. I feel lucky to be a part of it. Houses sell quick in South Park.
