Tierrasanta is a great family friendly community. There are several parks, places to eat, schools and daycares. The scenery is beautiful and much more green than many San Diego areas. I love that everything is close by; several options for grocery shopping, places to eat, and a library. I have lived here for two years and plan to stay many more! It is a bit pricey to buy in the area, but renting is affordable. The community is a like a family, and I love how close neighbors become and are always willing to help each other out!

It's a good place especially for families. There are a lot of public parks and playgrounds available for kids to play and hang out. The neighborhood is also quite safe since there are community patrol people around. There are schools from elemtary to high school that are only a walking distance away from the housing area. Also, there are some stores and restaurants a few minutes away by car (or about half hour walking distance). The only thing is the public transportation is not the best.
It has been almost 9 years since I moved out of Tierrasanta, but everyday, I go there since I go to school there. The neighborhood really hasn't changed much - it's a relatively small community which looks out for each other. Tierrasanta is mostly a residential neighborhood with three shopping centers (the largest of which is the town center). When in Tierrasanta, I feel safe due to the low crime and the fact that it is a quiet neighborhood. The greenery around the community (trees and grass along roads as well as the canyons) makes Tierrasanta a beautiful community.
