  1. Neighborly Neighbors

We all treasure childhood memories of sunny afternoons or bike rides with our besties. At Briar Chapel, those memories can transform into a reality for children. Here, wide, well-lit sidewalks welcome rides; trails attract adventurous family walks; and porches everywhere enable neighbors to forge relationships. Young’uns can play the evening away outdoors until mom or dad calls for dinner. Residents have been known to form online parenting support groups for advice, connection and encouragement. Plus, Briar Chapel’s full-time lifestyle director plans opportunities for learning and play year-round.

“My daughter can go bike riding with other kids in the neighborhood,” said Amy Rosso, Briar Chapel resident and mother of two. “Everyone keeps an eye on each other’s children. There’s a big sense of community here.”
