I have lived here for almost 34 years and I have always had positive experiences, no matter what my age. The restaurants are all family oriented and bringing my children up here was a good fit in my neighborhood in Greenwood. I love Lake Quannapowitt and the Gazebo, where my son and his wife took some wedding pictures. I have taken many a Christmas picture anywhere along the lake to send out cards.

Neighbors are all friendly when you meet them. They greet everyone they see on the street. Small cul-de-sac with small number of homes. All professional adults.

It is age friendly because it has a lot to do for a large range of ages. You can shop, dine, walk the lake, and be safe. It offers many activities for all ages.
