Seth Beaucha…, Home Buyer in Tampa, FL

Is Towne Park at goose creek a good location/community? can someone tell me what the area is like?

Asked by Seth Beauchamp, Tampa, FL Wed Mar 4, 2009

I am moving soon and trying to get a lay of the land, it seemed affordable but was looking to see if there was a catch.

Help the community by answering this question:


I have lived in Towne Park@Goose Creek since September 08.My new neighbors are mostly military( the ones I have met). The community itself is great. My opinion about the catch is the bad neighborhood that neighbors Townepark community...So the location of such nice affordable homes SUCKS!!!! The only way in and out of Town Park community is through a rough neighborhood with kids and teens..even adults standing on each street corner all day..even worse at nights and weekends. To be straight up..it's like living next too the GHETTO! The realtor and the association assured us at closing and in town meetings that the city would clean up the neighboring neighborhood...The 147.00 CONDO FEE each month sucks also,when there is nothing the homeowners see it is going toward like some private gates, to keep out trespassers.The neighboring neighood comes in our community and sometimes trashes houses that are being finished..I have not talked to anyone that have had any breakin..Besides,everyone have home protection...We are working at many improvements as far as that goes but..if I have to buy again..I would..could be worse! The house is great and huge. Hope this imformation help..plus we are next to all the major highways..Easy access to anywhere in Hampton Roads...

Hi Seth,

The homes in Towne Park at Goose Creek are absolutely beautiful. There are no other new construction communities in Chesapeake that could even touch these prices!

The drawback for some might be the community you pass through to get to Goos Creek. The community is comprised of townhomes that are subpar quality compared to Goose Creek. When you get a chnce try to look the address up on Google maps and you will see what I am referring to.

Please contact me at any time if you have more questions about the area.

Thank you,

Yes...Towne Park @Goose Creek is very racially diverse. No matter where you choose to live in Virginia(Hampton Roads Area) you will find a lot of everyone. With a condo association involvement with the community, I don't see the community and their plans for the community (and the 147.00 condo fee a month) going to decay.The condo association representive working under them works hard with the community to keep it at it's best. However, you must consider this is a newly developed community and there are(sticks and stones) to dodge as the community is being finished. For instance,some of the problems we are having now is dead plants and grass..they are working hard at restoring the life of the plants at the moment. Also as contruction is under way for more houses being built..sometimes water and light are cut off in the middle of the day with out notice.. another problem they the association is working on.The schools here are alright...My kids are only in Elementary..and no ..I have not seen any metal detectors.I am still feeling the schools out but my kids have been in the system for one year and have done great...I have heard good and bad but I like what I SEE so far...Hope this help

Is Towne Park at goose creek in VA racially diverse? Is this going to be a community of people who take care of the neighborhood.? I am a 50 yr old African American female presently working for the NYPD in New York city. I have lived in neighborhoods where the people dont care abkout it and let it decay. I want to live in a diverse neighborhood that will last. What about Western Branch schools? Do they have metal detectors? I visited towne park in 2008 and 2009 and love the layout of community but need more input. thank you.

I am not going to sugar coat it for you. The prices on the homes are so attractive because it is liking driving thorough Fallujah to get there. My advice- skip it or drop in by parachute to get home.
