Sherwood is laid out well so that traffic is not much of a problem. All the main shopping areas are close by, like Wal-mart and Kroger. It is also very close to the freeway, allowing quick access to Little Rock and North Little Rocks amenities. However, it could use a little sprucing up. Particularly the landscaping on the main streets. There is also a few neighborhoods that are a bit run down. The schools are average for Arkansas, however the middle school and high school both have new buildings.

Sherwood is full of open-minded, free-spirit people. If you're in need of anything, then this community will fulfill that. Everyhting's accessible, every place is close to eachother and it's just a beautiful place. It's full of nature and experiences.
It's mostly as you would expect from a suburb outside of Little Rock. It's often quiet with low traffic except near the interstate. There's relatively little crime as compared to Little Rock, but there aren't quite as many restaurants as the city. The schools available also aren't ideal but good schools can definitely be found.
