Hi there - we have been considering this neighborhood but despite having driven through it lots of times I have never seen a kid outdoor playing. It seems very sterile (?) I'm wondering if anyone has recent info as to the neighborhood culture - does everyone just do their own thing or is there a sense of community and children playing. I ask because that is one of the big drivers of moving - to get into a neighborhood where there are kids to play with (we live on a rural street right now).

Additionally - it looks like the HOA might be very strict on cars. Granted this is 8 years away, but it looks like you might not be allowed to "park" in your driveway or on the street. KNowing I will eventually have 2 driving teenagers, I'm trying to figure out where you put 4 cars in a 3 car tandem (so its only 2 cars wide driveway).

Any insight would be great... thanks so much!

I know three people that live there in drees homes. All have become grandparents in the last year or two. I don't see it as a family community. It seems to me that it's mainly upper middle class close to or retired people. The HOA is strict about enforcement, but what do expect out of a subdivision of bored middle aged people.

Deed restrictions on HOA website are far more restrictive than average. There seems faction of property owners in America believing sterile appearance of neighborhoord holds up property value best. At low end perhaps it even does. Run fast to nearest exit!

"Culture" does not exist in McMansionville. It IS all sterile. If you want cheap, clean, and functional, Dallas suburbs are for you. If you want culture, go to Paris (France).

Just sayin.

Sorry, not sure I understand the other responses or if they are supposed to be helpful in some way, but thank you Krantor - that is exactly the kind of information I was looking for!

If you're looking for kid neighborhoods, I wouldn't bother with Firewheel. From what I observed in our recent house search, it seems to be mostly older kids (high school plus) or very young/new families. I would try Murphy. We moved here and love it--good schools and tons of kids.

Not too far from FW is Sachse and I was on what I thought was a shortcut but was held up by crossing guards to
let all the kids out from school to grab a ride from the trail of mom's motorcade parked across from a school.
Haven't seen that many kids at once in quite awhile.
