"Pleasant Once You Look Beneath the Surface"

Old Town Federal Heights is not too unpleasant, despite how it may appear at first glance. As you come north on Federal it will initially appear to be a series of run-down buildings and old businesses. However, this area is in the immediate vicinity of a gem; a very large and pleasant park, called Carmenisch Park. This is a very large park with a baseball diamond and small creek that is very enjoyable to walk through and play in. Once you take time to appreciate the park you begin to notice the details in the surrounding neighborhoods. Most often, you are pleasantly surprised! We moved to just three street east of here while I was in high school and it was an improvement to our previous location. Many of the houses are not intended for the wealthy, but they are usually well-maintained with nurtured yards. You will also find many families with children that are happy to play together. Of course, there are always some folks that ruin it for many, but most people in this neighborhood take pride in their town and community.
