Review

"Well maintained, family-friendly neighborhood"

We lived in this neighborhood for about a year and a half. It's a collection of very well maintained Carothers Homes that were built around 2006-2009. There's a great mix of enlisted and officers families most of whom have kids. There are also some civilian families as well. The area is close to Skipcha Elementary, which is a great school in KISD. There's also easy access to 190 and all of the new shops and restaurants in Harker Heights. We moved here after living on post for a while and LOVED the change! We highly recommend this beautiful, convenient area! I lived there alone while my husband was deployed and always felt extremely safe!

Pros Cons
  1. Family friendly
  2. Near by parks and walking trails
  3. Close to shopping, movie theater, and Walmart
  4. Great schools
  1. None
