What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Buena Park

What I like most about living in the neighborhood is that there are many parks and outside activity areas. There are also various restaurants to try out different types of food.

My neighborhood is near many attractions, parks, theme parks, and entertainment. Family friendly restaurants are near by as well. We enjoy going to the theme parks and making it a whole day of it.

It's is quiet. The small coffee shop across the street that's walking distance.The park it's a great place for kids to play and adults to hang out and catch up!

There's a park above the parking lot , there's a game room, there's plenty of room everywhere the air conditions /heating is great the gym is great too

There are a few schools close by giving families different options for their kids. There are grocery stores and restaurants within a five minute driving distance. There are multiple movie theaters and park within a ten/fifteen minute drive. There's a lot of options nearby.

I like that it's near the mall and I can walk to it with my friends, and I like that it's not on a Main Street.
