Average Rating for this Community

I bought a small place here last year because it was within my tight budget and the location is good for me. I can walk to the DH Social Center and when I want to do something different there are tons of other amenity centers to choose from. It's really convenient when I'm out and want to meet up with friends at another destination - we have plenty of options. There is alot going on, the community is clean and the people here are nice.
