I have owned my home here in MP since the early 2000's. I have no problem walking my dog late at night. The neighborood shows a "pride of ownership" with a strong "leave it to beaver" feel. The builder was known as a top quality builder of the 1960's. Many realtors include "Meridith Home" and "Foothill Highschool District" to show the quality of the home and the top award winning school district. This area is incorrectly listed in some listings as a Santa Ana Unified district, but we are Tustin Unified. There are some bad areas in Santa Ana, but the 92705 area code is known as a beautful and very desirable area. We are close to every major frwy, 20 min round trip to JohnWayne airport, 5 mins to the train station.
Hope this helps!
