    "Cons - foxtails. Pros- proximity to parks. There’s also other neighbors with dogs which is nice, always great to have dog lovers and people who have a fondness of animals nearby. The VCA and other great vets are very close as well "

    "Proximity to many parks like Temescal Creek Park, Piedmont Park and San Pedro Park are all great draws. There’s too many foxtails along our neighborhood streets so that’s a downer. "

    "although there is a park nearby where children can play, it's not safe to walk around after dark alone. I would not leave a child under 12 unaccompanied in this neighborhood at anytime."
