University Park Reviews

The people here are friendly and diverse. There are usually kids playing in their yards during the day and the adults contribute to the community garden. The nights are very noisy because other college students are throwing parties next door or down the street. I would not live here again, Instead I would move back to our house in Rio Rancho where the neighborhood is quieter. I believe this area will be getting busier in the future, and a little more dangerous.
