The town is a good-sized suburb, large enough to have many facilities for entertainment and for food, but small enough to have a small-town feel. It is a very safe community with great schools, perfect to raise a family in.

Everyone is friendly, easy going, looking out for you, and children and adults always having something fun to do most of the time. Everyone came from different background which is very good because we all learn to live with each other and learn about ourselves and culture. it is very easy to relate because the people are warm hearted, cheerful and always smiling.
