The neighborhood is nice and quiet. We live off of Old Harford Rd, so we're close to the highway and major roads. Our neighbors are nice, and we enjoy living here!
There are few advantages and a lot of disadvantages with living in the Parkville region. One of the main advantages in Parkville is that there is a variety local businesses and restaurants to visit. However, Parkville has been a very dangerous city to live in as of late due to all of the frequent crimes occurring nearby. Additionally, I would not say that Parkville is family friendly or safe to live in at this point in time. All in all, I would not recommend living in Parkville.
