Overall Richardson is a great place to live! many things are changing and being improved around the city. There are only a few things that have changed my perspective of Richardson. I have attended some of the city council meetings and learned that the leaders of this great city are fantastic but do not take into consideration minor details that come with the change, for example they are improving one of the high schools in the districts and did not consider the parking problems that would come with that.

I can genuinely say that I enjoy living in Richardson! It is a reasonable distance from Dallas proper and Downtown, as well as a reasonable distance from the surrounding DFW area. It is close enough to everything to be convenient, but not right in the heart of the action where property is far too expensive.
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!
