Sun Valley Reviews

I loved in sun valley for about six years with my parents, little sister and our two dogs. Are neighborhood was mostly frightening. There is always guns shots where kids are, it's is unsafe for people with pets who take there walks when the sunsets and also the streets are not clean. The city needs more attention and care. With change and care sun valley can be a city like Burbank, ca. Sun valley has plenty of potential. Who wouldn't want to change their city for the better. Change can improve everyone's safety and better schools and the future.

What I like about Sun Valley is that there is a fantastic public school, good people, and park. Sun Valley High School has been excelling both academically and enforcing the rules. The people that I have come a crossed are respectful people, that you can have a conversation with when running into them while going for a walk. The Sun Valley is great in the summer because there is a program called Summer Night Lights, and gives people of all ages food and games.
Sun Valley is right smack in the middle of the San Fernando Valley. It doesn't take you more 20 mins to get to any part of the valley. Its diverse and filled with people from everywhere. There is all type of food you can go out and enjoy. There all so different places to go to for night life. Whether that's bowling, movies, mini golf, etc. There are options galore. And since its right in the middle even a quick trip to downtown wont take as long either. The only downside to that would be cost of living. Rent is expensive. But other than that its a good place to live with many options to do around the area.
