What Renters Like and Dislike About Scotia

The library and that is all I have to say and nothing else that is all I have to say that's my opinion

I do not go out because of covid but there is a mall near our house that we enjoy with family. Our neighborhood is unique because its all types of families and people who live around us not just one race or a certain type of class.

I like going to the park with my friends to hangout. I like that most grocery stores are a driveable distance away.

family standard,friedship.In the most of people are immigrants.i can say quite immigrants who believe in family values.

I love that the playground is right across my house . I love that i can walk near by the supermarket with the kiddos

The neighborhood has great bars and restaurants and the park is pretty well maintained. Close to the water and good views if you have a nice rooftop.
