What Renters Like and Dislike About Union City

Clean neighborhood with easy access to grocery stores and public transportation. The schools are close for kids and police station is one block away.

we have beautiful trails for walking - good location -nice neighborhood -many restaurant - many parks

To the malls parks and shopping centers. I like everything about my neighborhood... The school and the peoe.

Living withing 10 miles of most of my friends and family is a huge plus. We have a huge diversity of people, food and culture. Access to major highways and bridges. The school district is pretty good and the special education department is really good. I chose this place specifically for the school district.

In my neighborhood we have 6 parks within a mile and all are easy to walk to and very family / pet friendly. It is also great for taking pets for walks and or walks / runs for yourself. Everyone is also very friendly and caring.
