It is a wonderful place to relax and have fun. The man-made lake isn't that big, but the community is very warm and welcoming. My family is going through some hard times and nearly everyone has been trying to help out whenever they can. I know I can lean on them, as they do on me.

The lake is nice, but there are few parks and few things to do. The area seems to be trying to work on being better, but there is little growth, little things to do and few businesses.
We used to live in Detroit and so this area is a lot better. I liked growing up here with a lot of kids my age who liked to play outside. I think that made for a better childhood because of my neighbors. I love having lakes, parks, scenic walks, and my favorite ice cream shop all within walking distance.
