Sparr Heights Reviews

2
Living in La Cresenta is really a blessing. I've visited many other neighborhoods and this one is the best. We have some very good schools in our school district and even our poorest is immensely greater than the schools my parents had living in East LA. The neighborhood we are located in is a good distance from many great attractions in California and is situated in a great little valley surrounded by beautiful mountains. We are far enough away from LA to have clean air, lack of traffic and crime, but close enough to visit the city and enjoy it.

Love the area, people are nice, streets are clean, very family oriented, great festival. Definitely a place where I would raise my children. I hear the schools are great.
