we live just across the street in Dove Run. One of the biggest +:
you have groceries, bank, restaurants, tennis courts, schools etc in walking distance and a brand new police department

we moved here from north wilmington and are very happy with the school district.

Middletown itself is growing (and growing and growing), but for me it still has this small town atomosphere.
yesterday there was a big trick or treat event on main street with all the little shops there involved - we loved it !

there are a couple of areas I would not move to (next to redding middle school e.g.), but willow grove mill is a very nice and safe area to live in.

good luck !

We moved to Middletown, De from Toms River, NJ in Sept. For the most part we really like it. I would also agree to stay away from the area around Redding Middle School for housing however I have no problem frequenting the area for shopping, church and one of our kids attends the school with no problems.

What's up with the area around Redding Middle? How close are you talking? We're looking at houses in Middletown Crossing and The Legends, which seem to be about a mile away. Are those ok areas?

We like Middletown. Very quiet and much slower pace than Central NJ. From what we are told the area has had alot of growth and it appears that the growth is continuing. My biggest adjustments have been that I was used to everything I could want/need and more so close. There is plenty here just not as many selections. Also, I am used to retail places being open 24 hours which isnt a big deal. The downtown/Main St. area is quaint and we are looking forward to the Victorian Stroll this weekend. My children love it here and are adjusting well in school. The schools dont seem to have as many activities as in NJ but the level of education is fine. Everyone in our neighborhood has been very welcoming.

In addition to what momonthemove said I do not think that the recreation dept are as good as back in NJ. It is very hard to find sports teams for my kids. I do like the schools a lot. My children are doing great at the schools.
