This area is family-friendly and there are many activities that are available for everyone to participate in. There is a community pool that is available for usage from any of the area's residents and many other events that take place throughout the year. Everyone is very helpful and supportive. I would recommend anyone to live here because the atmosphere is so positive no matter where you are at here. The future seems very bright for this area, especially since most of the houses and land do not seem to lose their value.

There is not a lot of crime in the area, but when there is, it is taken care of quickly. Police are not around often, but respond well when there is anything wrong. There is some vandalism/graffiti in some places, however, it is covered almost immediately after it is found. Otherwise, the area is generally safe.
Not too much crime here, but the cops tend to either not come right away or be lurking around corners at night. The most common thing is kids just ding dong ditching
