There could be more things in the area that families can do together. Yes there are parks but you can not be there after a certain time. Teenagers do not have much to do but hang out and get into trouble. Yes some play sports to rid of stress or other issues at home, but they do not have many place outside of school and their homes to go without looking suspicious.
Very friendly police and people. Nice parks and they are very clean. Very close to the airport and metro link. Schools and stores are in walking distance from our home.
