"Love the area by the park"

This is a great little street. It’s totally in keeping with the subdued suburban style of the area, but the great thing about it is its close proximity to the Westerleigh Park.

Though quite small, the park is perfect for community needs. Lots of people walk their dogs here and socialize, and there are even wire baskets at each corner’s entrance that hold plastic grocery bags donated by the community just so you can pick up after your dog. There’s also a lovely white gazebo in the center that is often a focal point for community events. Just a couple of weeks ago there was a Folk Fair with live music performed at the gazebo and people selling their crafts and food items at little stalls – it was great.

A couple of neighbors have told me they tend to avoid the park after dark, and yes there might be teenagers hanging out in the gazebo after dark, but I’ve never been worried because 1) it’s so well lit, and 2) it’s so small and open so you can always see the people around and be aware of environment, and 3) there are ALWAYS other people around, not to mention houses just a stone’s throw away. Personally I don’t think there’s a thing to worry about, but there are always going to be people who worry about everything.

My favorite part of this particular street is that just before you hit the park as you travel down the street, there’s a house on the right side that has two decorative geese statues on their front lawn that their owners dress up according to holiday and season. I love walking my dog around there and seeing what the charming new custom costumes are!
