I love living in Richardson, Texas! So much happens in the community; from festivals, to charity events, and Santa's Village during the holidays, Richardson has so much to offer. Lots of new construction is bringing in new jobs, new housing and new retail. There are plenty of parks, two recreation centers, trails, and dog parks, Richardson is an extremely dog friendly city!
I grew up in Richardson Texas; it's a great city where new young families can get their start. I would highly recommend this city to younger families because the neighborhoods are safe and full of older residents. One thing I would like to see change in Richardson would be a bigger nightlife scene. This city is hard for teenagers because it is dominated by small Family owned businesses. Richardson is great however, because it is built upon rural home communities where children can openly go and play at neighborhood parks. I would not recommend this neighborhood to young adults who do not have children.
Richardson is a very friendly community with active residents. Richardson provides its residents with biking lanes and running trails as well as many parks. Richardson was very creative when they found a location for a dog park. The Bush Central Barkway is underneath the interchange of Central Expressway and George Bush Turnpike and has areas for different groups of dogs - under 40lbs, above 40lbs and less active dogs. Richardson provides something for everyone and has zoned the city properly for traffic flow.
