"The street with a little bit of everything"

Maple street is a very peaceful neighborhood. The street stays quiet from day to night. Cars don't pass down the road very often. And overall the neighbors are very kind people. If you would like to travel to the town you can do so by foot and make it there in just minutes. The train is also walking distance and makes it a very useful form of transportation. One of my issues with the street is that traveling through town during busy times means a good amount of traffic. But by far one of the best qualities of the neighborhood is the park. The park is only feet away from the houses and it's a good place to go after a long day.

The park that is literally my backyard is called Rideout Playground. It is named after a lieutenant who was killed in action in World War One. This park offers a lot to frequent visitors. You can take a jog around it if you're feeling up for it. You can also walk your dog around, or play at the playground. There is a basketball and tennis court, and three baseball diamonds where you can watch and play all you want. And lastly there's enough green grass to just sit down, run around, relax and have fun at. An interesting fact is that the park at one point held circuses frequently.

Thoreau School is a friendly elementary school that I attended growing up as a child. It was filled with positive friends, teachers and memories. My experience kindergarten through fifth grade was that Thoreau is a safe place for me to learn and have fun. The school is very new, as it was established over ten years ago. The teachers are very active involved and care for the students well being.

The Five and Ten is a top store in West Concord. As a little kid that was the dream store. It had very inexpensive candy. Not every store has penny candy, but this store has it all. Candy is one of the many things they sell at this store. They have lots of toys, school supplies, work tools, games, and even costumes on halloween. The employees who work there were always very respectful and nice to me as a customer. What makes the Five and Ten interesting is that it appeals to all ages. The customers are lured in because of their tradition, useful items and candy which mold the store into what it has become today

Cardboard box water has become a known and popular thing around town. Especially after the ban from a normal sized plastic water bottles. You will see many people with different ways of holding their water. Ranging from refillable water bottles to glass bottles. And if you think it's crazy that we banned plastic water bottles, then you will be surprised that we almost passed a vote to put cats on leashes.
Pros
  • There is a playground super close by
  • Community is close to each other
  • It is a walking distance to the train
Cons
  • Early morning traffic
  • Not too much diversity between neighbors
  • Driving during busy times through town is dangerous for pedestrians due to the tight roads
