This is definitely one of the greatest neighborhoods i have ever been a part of. I feel extremely safe, there are plenty new residents moving in, and all the people are friendly! There is also an array of activities that i can partake in such as the gym, basketball, swimming, baseball, or simply enjoying fresh air at a nice park. In the future, i believe this community will prosper and expand. i would love to live here again.

This area is really great. It's quiet, peaceful, and neighbors are extremely friendly. There have been some incidents of thefts within the neighborhood but security is pretty good for an un-gated community. The neighborhood is kept clean and is maintained very well. I believe this area is a great place for families, especially with a park in close proximity.

I love the place in which I live. It's affordable and very comfortable I feel most at home here! It's also very close to the 408 which is good for traveling especially downtown and also close to many upcoming restaurants and Waterford Lakes which is a shopping center. Very good for job opportunities.
