Willow Oaks Reviews

Richmond is a great area for raising children. It has great schools, museums, culturally diverse activities, many parks and is close to the beach and mountains and Washington DC. I would choose to live here again. I see this area as continuing to grow and expand and the universities, especially VCU, playing more of a role in developing Richmond.

Crime comes and goes in Richmond. It has improved significantly since the 1990s, but there are periods when it spikes. The revitalization of downtown has improved crime rates.
