My area is mostly young adults and ages within 40-50 years.

What makes Manchester CT age friendly is the nice resources we have in our community. We have a library, we have a park, and we have trails. All things that kids and/or the elderly can enjoy. Parks are good for walks and sight-seeing while the library is good for reading. We also have a police station smacked dead in the center of town which I'm sure makes the community feel safer.
