What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Owensboro

I like that Iike that I live in the back of the neighborhood. Behind my house we have woods that makes it more private. Not very much traffic.

I like that there is a large lake nearby with a lakewalk to bike or walk on. There are parks all around some with hiking trails.

I like that we are close to the lakewalk. Our neighborhood is quiet and is a good place to raise kids.

It's a rural area. I have space for my dogs to run and to have a large garden. I'm close enough to work so I can be on-call.

The area is great for walking your pet. Taqueria is great for walking your pet. Some neighbors like to sit outside and talk to the other neighbors. It is sometimes like a party atmosphere.

I love my neighbors and I feel like I am close to everything I need . Work is close store is close school was close
