What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Mount Prospect

I like Clearwater park where I can run. I like that ELC is near. I like because I can walk to store and back.

its quiet but not many things to do that are close by. it is a good place to raise a family and to live and retire in

There isn't anything that stands out. There aren't any unique restaurants. But I still like living there.

Great neighbors, quiet streets, groceries shopping nearby and forest preserves nearby to walk either in the neighborhood & to parks.

Good schools, family friendly, kids around, great stores and library near by, good roads and sidewalks

I like how friendly all of my neighbors are. Everyone is very nice and will help if they need it. No one is bad.
