Pound Ridge Reviews

We moved to Pound Ridge a year ago and are in love with the quaint shops, market and the restaurants. It’s a chill area with friendly people - plenty of things to do if you want to socialize and privacy if you want that too. Schools are excellent! Town is safe and police are great.

Nice town with resources. Quiet and country-like. Mostly wooded and houses aren't too close. Park is great and schools as well - the elementary and high schools are good.
Moved here about 4 years ago. WE love the people and love the town. The park is great. And to top it off it has great schools. One of the best choices we ever made..
