We looked at a house today and are considering moving to Presidio Village (fort worth, texas). I'm interested in finding out what the neighborhood/schools are like. We like quiet neighborhoods We have 2 in elementary and 1 in middle school. We are in the Saginaw/Blue Mound area and do not like it at all. I'm concerned as I'm not sure what shopping is nearby...mainly groceries...without getting on 35 as I can't stand the traffice! I'm REALLY concerned about the middle school. It didn't seem as nice as Highland where my son attends in Eagle Mountain Saginaw School District. Any thoughts would be appreciated

Default Re: Shopping without 35

We go east on heritage trace to 377 and do our shopping over there for now, but there is a lot of shopping in the plans to be built on the east side of 35, my husband and I both work north of dallas and we go straight up 35 to 170 to 114 to get out there, I really don't think anything is really difficult to get to out here, we're used to having everything being pretty accessible like in Euless, and we're happy with it.

And Chisolm middle school looks nice. They recently did the TAKS test in NWISD and more kids passed out here than in Euless and I thought very highly of the HEB school district.

Here are the plans for all the shopping:

Default How does the neighborhood seem?

My husband is an engineer & was commuting to the nuclear plant in Glen Rose, about 1 hr 20 mins. He just recently started working in the Hulen area, so I'm guess he would be looking at about a 30 min drive from Presidio.

What we mainly like to avoid in neighborhoods would be lots of barking dogs...drives me nuts! AND teens and *******s that seem to be allowed to wander the streets I didn't hear dogs, or see any groupies hanging around when we've been out there, so it is looking promising My husband is holding us back as he hates to move. He also can't stand to travel on 35 so that really might be a problem.

Do you know if a community pool is in the plans. I didn't check on that. I'm assuming not

You might also check out Sendera Ranch. They have a huge pool and park complex similar (not as nice as Heritage, but looks good). It is also in the Northwest ISD and is served by Haslet Elementary which is "recognized".

We are moving into Spring Ranch which is about 15 mins from Saginaw, where my Mom lives .

Thumbs up Peaceful

I like it here, my son is 9 and he has tons of friends, most of the kids in the neighborhood are around his age or younger, so the kids that are around are young ones, not old enough to cause any trouble. I don't know if there is a community pool in the works though, I'll check on that and there are other options besides 35 that lead down to south fort worth like Blue Mound Rd.

Default Thank you!

That is exactly what we are looking for. A quiet neighborhood. Our boys are 10 & 12 and our girls are 6 & 20 (however our 20 yr old only comes home for school breaks...boohoo)

My wife and I built a home here and we like it.
It is quite and the neighbors are nice.
She has a crime report sent to her once a month and the crime here is low, just the usual fights, but they are on the north end of us.
we are lucky and have Fort Worth police across the street and a State trooper down the street.
We feel pretty safe and don't worry to much about that sort of stuff, not to mention I have a CHL.
