I love this neighborhood, it's very friendly and safe. However, if I could change a few things, I would. For one, I would add sidewalks everywhere so kids, pedestrians, dogs, etc. don't have to walk on the road; also bike lanes, so that it's easier to get around without driving and polluting the air, since there are many stores that I visit that are within walking distance. Secondly, I would update and add to the parks that we have. Thirdly, I would like to see some of the roads improved.

Small community by the lake working for an even better tomorrow. Schools are great. Parks are really nice. Many local activities like the Easter egg hunt held this Saturday the 13th. Also a Christmas event open to the community and their families with just a donation of a canned good.
Born and raised in this little city, never had any problems regarding safety. Not much to do as adult, but as a child it was great growing up. Always had woods and streets to play in and could ride a bike to a friends house. It is very family friendly, and a community who cares a lot about their children and safety.
