What Renters Like and Dislike About University Park

The presence of bars and restaurants, and there are schools and gatherings And wonderful gardens for a stroll

The hotel nearby is very nice and the service is very good to go to with friends. The school is very happy and the kids are very close

The neighborhood is characterized by the social status of the neighbors ,Restaurants and bars are relatively close and I like going to restaurants

What is special about it is the presence of my friends and family and friends are going through the store and my children are not going through anything else to be there

Things that I like in my neighborhood is. Hanging with my and having a cookout. Riding bikes with my friends and sometimes playing on a PS4 with them.

My church is nearby and within walking distance, and there are many neighborhood restaurants that we've gone to for years. I work locally in a bookstore and run into so many kind people I know.
