Southwest/Parker Ridge Reviews

2
The area I live in is a very urban suburb. We're close to all of the shops and hub of downtown but we also have the oak-tree lined feel of the 'Norman Rockwell' neighborhood. While it may be considered a poor area, the people living in this community take pride in our neighborhood, and maintain it well. There's a definite sense of community of here. You can see it in the picket fences that line the houses, and the way most of the neighborhood gathers in the Cuban restaurant on Sunday nights. I can't imagine growing up anywhere else, and I'm proud to live where I do.

Our neighborhood is extremely safe considering the socioeconomic bracket it falls within. I've lived here for three years now and have never once seen or even heard of a crime of any kind.
