The Pros are you have close access to take advantage of all the recreational facilitles Scarsdale has to offer. Also, it really depends on which park it is .....some have much more activity than others. As a Scarsdale resident with 3 children, the parks to me are great and I know which ones might be more of an issue to live near. The cons are obvious....noise from sports, cars parking around, fly balls, etc.... Feel free to contact me on my cell @ 914.672.6424 to discuss. I would love to help you find something - Scarsdale is a great place to live!
