Wedgewood Reviews

1
Not quite a suburb feel but not quite a ghetto feel, right about in the middle.
Nice neighborhood. Sidewalks in back are nice. Mostly safe. Homes are average. Quiet. Good neighbors, Not much walkability, but about 15 minutes away from everything by car. The park has a good community with monthly meetings and events. Good neighborhood for a family. The neighborhood mostly consists of families, elderly, and city workers.
