What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wilde Lake Columbia

I like the woods and the paths that cut through the woods throughout the neighborhoods. I also like most of the restaurants.

Safe. Nearby liquor store. Family nearby. Quiet. No worries. Pretty to look at. Close to everything. Parks

I like that the neighborhood is 55 plus; it keeps it from being filled with loud, rude children. It's close to hospitals and shopping. My neighbors are quiet, and they are mostly polite.

I like that there is a homeless shelter close by. I like the greenspace across the street. It is a nice area for me to go for a run, or to walk my dog.

Public schools makes the neighborhoods very unique. A lot of restaurants can go to. A lot of restaurants can walk to without using car.

Friendly , concerts at the well known parks. Everyone is nice and respectful. Everyone goes to the local wawa to shop.
