Round Lake Park Reviews

3 reviews
I like that it has made major improvements in education since I was a child, it's close vicinity to hospitals, supermarkets, etc. the number of parks within walking distance.

Downsides - don't feel safe walking at dusk or leaving my child outside to play by herself. The number of registered sexual predators nearby is just too scary. The property taxes are incredibly high, too.

Round Lake Park used to be a nice, friendly small town. Growing up I knew and got along with all of my neighbors and I can't remember a lot of crime, but as I've gotten older more and more minorities have moved into the area and the crime rate has gotten worse and worse. It's not the worst place to live but I'll definitely be moving out of this town before my son is old enough to start school.
One of the biggest issues is the police. Some are nice, but then some are not the best and make you almost fearful. Police aren't meant to be feared. Also, the small businesses are in proximity and make it nice to run to the store and grab something, however, the residential area is very low par. Some homes are nice, but then others are buried in tall grass and decaying structures.
