West Park is quite quiet compared to other cities. There isn't much traffic and it has a calm atmosphere. I would like to see changes in the stores that are available close by. There is only one grocery store that is close to my neighborhood but it's pretty small. Overall, it is a great place to live.

It is a small city with very diverse neighborhoods. It's average on all scales and very affordable for those who are single and have families. But nightlife is very limited.
Changing in good ways. The City spent several million dollars to add a bike lane and widen the streets. The Public Works department is working hard to keep it a very clean community. Most people respect their property and others. Crime has dropped. Close to everything.
