What Renters Like and Dislike About Golden Valley

Marathon and harvest meat market. Neighborhood unique mix with many cultures. Love going out to eat with friends and family

We know all of our neighbors, and can count on them to have our best interest at heart. The trees are homes to many varieties of birds and there are many squirrels. I am 2 blocks away from a nice sized lake which I enjoy recreationally.

Crystal is a safe, friendly neighborhood with good schools and adequate police presence. We have a well-run mayoral and city council system. There are several small businesses throughout the city as well as major ones.

It's very peace and self for children let alone adults my neighbor are very friendly and caring we sort of watch for each others.

Our small down town with its little shops bars and restaurant, it also has a nice little park in the middle of town that people walk through and sit on benches and they hold events there a few times a month
