What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lock Haven

I like how quiet the streets are and you can take walks. Close proximity to parks and the river. Downtown is just a 5 minute drive.

I live IN a senior high rise n it used safe n secure to live in. Local grocery store and drug store. Unfortunately the bug city Is 45 miles away so I don't get to go to the big sites or restaurants.

My neighborhood has a lot of very nice and friendly people including college students. They look out for me and my place. I'm elderly and I appreciate having their help cause I walk my dog late at night sometimes and he's elderly too.

There is a few parks close by. There are a few fast food restaurants within walking distance. That's about it and i also like that a good friend of mine lives down the street

Everything is in walking distance and has a great view of the mountains has some beautiful old buildings
