What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About College Park

There is nothing noteable or likeable about my neighborhood. It's an unpleasant place to live. It has been neglected by the city.

I like how everyone knows everyone in my neighborhood. Also, I like how there is a sense of community.

Everybody knows everybody else in one way or another where if you outsiders quiet Town. My favorite restaurant is great wall it's a hole in the wall restaurant was amazing flavor and spice. My friends are usually hang out at the park with my family usually stay then for movie night or we go out to a family dinner.

We live within steps of a river. We have caring and good neighbors. We have a nice mix of age groups.

Nice views and sunsets. Good neighbors and close commute to get necessities. There is not a lot of loud noise or violence

Close to the university, where I work. Pretty easy to access nearby grocery stores. It is also pretty close to the main highway.
