What Renters Like and Dislike About Leander

Our neighborhood is very quiet and has a lot of trees. It is close to a grocery store and too many parks. We have a pond near our home.

I wish I could live near the parkGo for a walk with your friends in your spare timeIt'd better have some flowers. I like flowers

Nice view and close to green belt park. It is close to the shopping area and restaurants. It is close to golf course as well.

It's quite. I couldn't leave my car unlocked and not worry too much. I can go out to my car late at night and not worry either.

It's a very nice and beautiful neighborhood filled with lovely families. I like that it's gated and there is a lot of security.
