Welcoming community and bright spirit of locals.
My favourite part of my area is the absence of discrimination and judgment sparking welcoming relations towards all different people. As a Muslim immigrant mother I have felt welcomed and appreciated and I am very grateful to live within such an environment where I can experience such a variety of cultures. I am proud that my children can grow to learn within a large bright community and have the opportunities that any parent would want. E.g. I have three young daughters who have all been part of a free local playgroup where not only my kids have made relations but also myself with other parents. This small opportunity has a large scale affect on the neighbourhood ranging from increasing mental health and happiness aswell as strengthening the community. This is just one example of why it’s a pleasure to be part of my local area. What I believe would benefit our area is regeneration of very old buildings and making use of ruined spaces. It would make the environment more aesthetically pleasing and increase attractive sites all around. Once the global pandemic settles it would be very enjoyable to have community events for everyone to heal together and come together once again after a troubled time for many many locals. This would hopefully also have an affect on the crime rates and make the surroundings feel a little safer for the future generations.
The transport facilities available are very helpful with regular attendance and as a mother of 3 young kids I am especially grateful to the services provided.
Apart from the occasional noise pollution, the community is very welcoming. However that’s not to say it’s a very safe community. My surrounding neighbourhood is regularly involved with crime but I am aware that many areas endure similar issues aswell.
I am so blessed to be living in a community where I can openly express my values. I have the pleasure of being part of a welcoming environment to be myself and gain knowledge of the various bright cultures all around me. I appreciate the number of opportunities available to be creative and partake in for all demographics ranging from the youngest to eldest of ages. I would appreciate if there were to be an increase in the number of community events to rekindle the proud spirit after a period of hardship once the covid pandemic is over.
I love the location and the fact that a park is 5mins away.
I love the location and the fact that a park is 5mins away. With plenty of local amenities and easy access into central it's one of the best locations to live. Can't really say there's anything I dislike about the area.the atmosphere in the local area is similar to that of a residential area towards the outskirts of London. The neighbours are friendly and there's never any disputes. The area is great for children and pets with parks nearby and it feels safe. Even at night you don't feel like you need to look over your shoulder.
The transport links are always great and convenient. The location means you can easily get to anywhere in greater London usually within 45mins. Plenty of bus routes to take you in any direction and usually the buses will come at least every 10mins. Transport is always usually clean and reliable and there's rarely traffic. Unfortunately the closest overground station is around 20mins walk which isn't the worst. However as there's no off road parking there's no dedicated cycle lanes.
Parking availability is usually fine. Sometimes you just need to park down the street and walk for a minute so that's not too much of a problem. Bin collection is fine and they're able to remove waste so that there's not excess lying around the street. There are quite a few cases of antisocial behaviour on the council estate on the part of the street but of my 25 years living on the street, I've never had any issues. I believe it's half and half between renters and owners. With the half that's renting, the flats belong to housing associations. Majority of the people on my street are families.
There are plenty of corner shops and amenities in the local area. You can find some form of takeaway, a pharmacy, cafes, post office, launderette and a few upscale restaurants and bars if you'd prefer to enjoy an evening out. Paddington recreational grounds is a short walk which you'll usually find quite busy, with exits leading out towards Maida Vale, Kilburn or Chippenham, it's always a popular park to take a stroll.
The atmosphere is not terribly pleasant and I would say that this is one of the poorer areas in London.
The atmosphere is not terribly pleasant and I would say that this is one of the poorer areas in London. However, it is almost central & is not terribly far from oxford street & Regent’s Park. I would not say that the area is suitable for children as it is not very safe.
There are many public transport options and a tube station (Queen’s Park) very close & easy to use. The cleanliness of these public transport options are average however they are normally on time & working.
Anti social behaviour is incredibly common in this area unfortunately. Traffic noise is not very common & the area is quiet in general unless groups of teenagers are present. There are regular & good bun collections but rarely recycling.
There are a range of local shops in w10 however many of these shops aren’t very aesthetically pleasing or clean & organised. There are also a few restaurants however these too are below average. There are a few open spaces in the area such as a park and an outdoor children’s playground.
Amazing Golborne road
