Pike Creek is such a calm and nice neighborhood! The people that live here are always friendly and know each other from various neighborhoods. The area has wonderful schools as it falls in the red clay school district.

I love the Pike Creek area. I have lived here almost 3 years (2 years in a different neighborhood) and wish I had moved here sooner! I would definitely live here again if I could do it all over - I would prefer current location to previous neighborhood as well. I have not lived in any other states so cannot speak relative to the entire country. I have lived in other cities in this state, though, and it is my favorite.
I have not been directly impacted by crime in this area, though I have heard about store robberies in some local shopping centers. I don't see police frequently, but I don't think that is bad - I consider that to mean they aren't needed. I have never needed to call them, though, so unsure about response time. Better sidewalk/street lighting would be nice.
