Mill Run Place is located on the east side of Wayne County just across highway 70 from Walnut Creek. I live out in this area and have always felt very safe. The area is mostly neighborhoods with very little retail or commercial in the immediate vicinity. Easy access to points east, west, north, and south.
Woodview Drive is in the NW part of the county and again in a residential area with. Not much retail or commercial. There are more rentals in this area than the Mill Run area.
