Everyone is very friendly, everything you need is very close by and close together. Great neighborhoods, small town. Good school system. Has great local restaurants and really nice parks as well!

Brecksville is my hometown. It is consistently safe. The people here are kind and friendly and it is truly a family. The public school system is strong, ranked highly by the state. Safety is rarely a concern. Financially, there are many options for living here with any budget. One will find both new families and older retired couples living in Brecksville. It is a beautiful home and always provides a sense of community.

I love the community and bond we have developed over the years. Some people are stuck up, but my neighborhood is very down to earth. Great people!
