Oak hills a very safe neighborhood with a tightly knit community. There is a community organization that takes care of budgets for the recreation center and pool, as well as the newsletter, and general maintenance. However, living can be moderately expensive, and there is a monthly payment towards these facilities. There are frequent community events that often involve guest speakers as well.

The facilities available are stellar, it's just a matter of whether or not you can afford them. Many people make use of the free facilities for exercise, however, such as the walk paths and parks with basketball and tennis courts. In general, I would say the people in this area are relatively health conscious and find some way to stay active.
I'm a rather attractive young woman in this area and I use public transportation all the time, I rarely feel unsafe.
