Nunda Township Reviews

The nature/outdoor life is spectacular. We are located right near a fabulous and famous state park: Moraine Hills.

It is just 5 miles from my neighborhood and I bring my dog there every weekend. Many, many locals either visit this park regularly, or have been there before. The trails are cleared and clean and there are specific trails designated for walkers and bicyclists. In the winter, some folks cross-country ski in the park and others walk with trekking poles. It is a fabulous site with an abundance of wildlife and a very silent, comforting atmosphere. In the fall, it is the best to jog or walk the trails and discover the many species of trees and plants.

Within the neighborhood, people are usually active. There are a lot of runners and bicyclists. There is 1 park that I know of in the neighborhood that has a large field and a small play ground for children. If you head down the hill near the rivers, most people have their boats on the water. Overall, the nature and the outdoor activities are quite wonderful.

I have been living in Nunda Township for the last five years. I enjoy the open space environment. The people here are friendly and respectful of your privacy. If you enjoy a slower pace of life than Nunda for you , if you enjoy city living Nunda may not be your top choice to move to.
The housing area where I reside needs improvement. We are split between an old neighborhood and a new neighborhood so that is a contributing factor to my rating. In the old neighborhood, there are many houses that are in very poor condition, do not have garages, and have unkempt yards. A lot of the homes need their roofs replaced and have very old siding. I think since these are lower income residents, they simply do not have the means to fix these issues. However, there is great diversity depending on which way you walk. Some roads have a mixture of both small run-down houses and then set in between would be very nice, very well kept homes. There are a few vacant lots and people seem to be losing their homes more often. The water is a very poor part of our neighborhood. We run on a well and this well is badly maintained by the owner. There are many times that we do not have water for a day at a time and even when water is available we do not drink it. It is very rust filled and rich with iron. Overall, the neighborhood is diverse and I think there is a little good and a little bad.
