There are so many trees! I love trees and our neighbourhood has a lot of them. We have 5 oak trees and one pine tree in our yard and most of the neighbours have just a many. Since it’s an older neighbourhood, and was built without tearing down the trees, they are all mature trees.
- It’s fairly quiet. There is the sound of children playing and lawn mowers, but no traffic noise or things like that.
- There are miles of bike and walking paths. Some areas look as if I’m walking through the woods.
- Our house sits on the tee box of the 5th hole of a golf course. We can’t afford to join the course’s country club, but it’s fun sitting on the deck talking to and watching the golfers tee off.
- It’s close to a major highway, but not close enough to be able to hear the traffic on it.
- It’s just a short ride to shopping. We actually have a grocery store we could walk to, about a mile away.
It’s a very easy drive to get down town with no traffic.
- There is a community association that keeps up the community standards. The entire community looks good. They notify residents if the standards are not being upheld and give them a period of time to comply. They take care of the open spaces, the park, and the playgrounds.
- There is hardly any crime in the area.
- It’s close enough to family but not that close!
- They have a Fourth of July parade and fireworks.
- They have a Christmas home decorating contest. It’s wonderful riding around and seeing all of the houses decorated with lights.
- There is a very pretty reservoir and park in the community.
- They have a green market from spring to fall, which is a small farmer’s market selling fresh, locally grown produce.
- Our next door neighbours are very nice! We don’t have to worry about things when we go away. They look after the house, collect the mail, etc. They’re great people.
