Northwood is a small community outside of Toledo, OH. I love this community because I feel safe here. I would like to see more businesses and places to do things.
Always quiet, safe, and secure. Never have had any problems with neighbors or any people in the community. Only issue is the trains, but the overpass recently built has helped a good deal with that.
