My Children and I have been residents for 11 years now. By us being multi-cultural, it's a nice diverse community... safe , with excellent school districts, plenty of parks, bike/ walking trails, and a big variety of shopping... the 2 biggest downsides is housing. It's too expensive... due to the high property taxes! Plenty of nature... and because of that a lot of "road kill". Skunks are a big problem here so be cautious late night/ early morning!

Great area! It's pretty safe, pretty diverse. It's safe to say that it's mostly a privileged area. Restaurants and shopping boutiques/corners are everywhere!
It is a very nice community. It has a great school system across the board. From kindergarten to community college, students will be receiving an amazing education from teachers that truly care. The schools provide exceptional resources to the students. They provide after-school space for students that have parents that are still working after-school.
