I am moving to the Cincinnati area to work at Good Sam and B North. I am looking at the new condos at Bridgecreek in Springfield township due to the proximity to both hospitals and highway access. I drove through the area which looks decent in some places, and a bit sketchy in others. I would really appreciate any advice regarding this area so I can find a safe place to live for the next few years.

You should be fine there. What I highlighted above is common for many parts of the Cincinnati area.

The Bridgecreek development should be quiet with no issues. Not too far down Compton Rd to the West, you'll approach some less prosperous areas of Springfield Twp/Mt Healthy but you shouldn't have reason to frequent that area often.

The general area doesn't have too many amenities either but you're not too far from a Kroger grocery store 5 minutes away, Northgate shopping 10-15 minutes away, and Kenwood/Tri-County shopping 15-20 minutes away.

Welcome to Cincinnati! Welcome to Springfield Township ( If you choose to stay with us in Springfield Township ).

It's a good area. We live in Finneytown. Across our street, there's Oak Creek Apt, which is so close to the main street Winton and Compton.

Springfield Township is a nice area. For us, it's more like family town. Very convinient to go to public areas, restaurants, shopping centers, schools, doctors offices, fitness center etc.

It's not far to go to other areas like Downtown or Montgomery ( which Montgomery is our weekly commute going to church ).

Springfield Township has some events for public, as well. Look around, feel the atmosphere. You'll know when it's the right place for you to stay.

Have a blessed one!

Does the area seem to be improving? I am looking to buy and don't want to invest in a declining area.

I work in Springfield Township and belong to a church in neighboring Mt. Healthy, so I'm well familiar with the area. Large areas of the township are a very stable, older suburb where I think property values will hold their own. But overall there is probably a slight downward trajectory. As someone else mentioned, the area where you are planning to rent is safely middle-class but only a short drive away from some neighborhoods that really can only be described as sketchy.


Wyoming, a municipality that adjoins Springfield Township, is a premiere choice in the Cincinnati area for people who're concerned about property values. Property there remains in perpetual demand because of the excellence of both city services and the school system. So that might be worth a look.


Is there any way you could rent for six months or a year in that condo development you were asking about? The answers to a lot of your questions will become more clear once you're living in the area.
