I have lived in other areas of Saint Louis and can say this is my favorite so far. I love the area. People are always around walking their dogs or exercising. I feel very safe here. Also, it is convenient to the Galleria Mall, grocery stores, and other shopping. You can easily hop on the highway to go anywhere else you need. I have been very impressed with living in this area.

Great community with great people. The community is filled with caring people who watch out for each other. There is also tons of kids in the community to hang out with.
I have lived here for a little over two years, and so far it has been relatively peaceful. I have a thirteen year old son who actually loves his school district.
