    "The area appears to be kid friendly. Children play outside and parks and schools are close by. I have lived here for 8 months and look forward to spending a few years in this community. I enjoy having a beach near by that is well maintained. Plenty of conveniences near by. Don’t have to venture far for groceries. "
