I am looking for some recommendations for kid friendly neighborhoods. Somewhere kids are outside and playing all the time. Anywhere in East TN is good. THANKS

I can recommend Sterchi Hills. My daughter has many friends there and we were just there Trick-or-Treating.

The homes are about 15 years old and newer. The existing homes are running from about $179,900 on up. Nicely built and they don't all look the same. I know that the elementary school is one of the best in the area.

I hope this helps!

Wow hiknapster, I guess they do do things differently up there in Tennessee.

Just checking to see if you had that little house next to your name yet.

Thanks - I will check it out. We do like established neighborhoods with trees!

I also highly recommend Sterchi Hills.

On the other hand, there aren't many neighborhoods in Knoxville that I would NOT recommend as being great for kids. I live in a very blue collar North Knoxville neighborhood which is roughly 1/3 white, 1/3 black, 1/3 Hispanic. Kids of all colors and backgrounds are always playing together in the street. I absolutely love it. They're normal kids but they're also very respectful and courteous which is actually pretty typical of Knoxville.

Good luck!

This is very, very true. There is not one subdivision that I would say to stay away from. The entire area is family orientated. If you would like an older area, we have that, but we have new subdivisions, too, and everything in between.

My neighborhood is great, too. But it is not what people now call "subdivisions." It's a neighborhood from the 50s.

But I thought of Sterchi Hills because we just came from there and all of the homes were nicely decorated and there were hordes of kids and parents walking up and down the streets.

Maybe by this evening I will have the house next to my name. I need a smilie that has her fingers crossed!
