No, the name is not a joke. It really isn't Monopoly. Our neighborhood really is called Park Place. Adjacent to us is the Park Paseo neighborhood. Yes, we have a community association, and yes, we have CC&Rs. For those not familiar, that stands for Codes, Covenants, and Restrictions. Some people may not, but I like it. It keeps residents accountable. We have lived here for over 29 years. Our neighborhood is unique because every street in the neighborhood is a cul-de-sac. That means it is a dead-end street. Another thing that makes our neighborhood unique is that all streets are 1 block long. Yes, that's ONE block. All students can walk to the local elementary school from Park Place without crossing any street. Cool. Especially if you are in Kindergarten!!
Our street is special. There are 5 families in a row on our side of the street who are original residents. We love our street and our neighborhood and can't imagine living anywhere else. Here are some photos.
