I live just a couple of blocks from Briarwood and have always loved the ORchard Hills neighborhood. They have one of the strongest neighborhood associations in town. Depends which end of Briarwood you are on: if on area east of Saturn Road, eh.....it can be a bit dicey on weekends. By dicey I mean, loud parties and the occasional gunfire. Across Saturn Road, between Saturn and Glenbrook Drive, pretty quiet, except for occasional speeders. There is that dog leg turn about halfway down towards Glenbrook, sometimes folks take it a little too quickly. Between Glenbrook and Fifth Street, you have to deal with Rick Oden park and weekend parties/radios, plus that side of the neighborhood is not so great. Loud parties on weekends. The section between Saturn Road and Glenbrook is the nicest, lots of long time residents in there who take care of their yards and watch out for each other. Several seniors living along there too. Nice folks. Great area to walk too. Plus it is a few hundred yards from Glenbrook which has a designated biking lane that goes all the way to Centerville Road and all the way north to Belt Line Road, passing by Central Park, which is a great place to walk/run. Hope this helps!

Yes, if you are a good neighbor and like people of all ages and types, who are also good neighbors. Otherwise, maybe not.

It is a very nice neighborhood of 1950's vintage frame homes not far from downtown Garland. Here is a link to a website providing 2010 census demographics for zip code 75041. You will probably have to copy and paste it to you

Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached.
