What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kirkwood

There are many restaurants nearby. There is a nice park close by.It has a pond for fishing and a walk around the pond.

It has a small town feel to it while still having all the amenities you would want. People are neighborly and look out for one another. It has many parks and playgrounds which make it kid friendly.

The neighborhood is well established. We like Billy G's & Vitale's Deli. We like going to downtown Kirkwood.

We can walk to restaurants, banks and shops. All of the houses are neatly maintained. There is very little crime.
