Directions to Scott’s Pond Neighborhood
Living in Scott’s Pond has been ideal for our family, with a great high school close by for our daughters and the convenience of a grocery store a mile away. After our five years here, we know you will love Scott’s Pond just as much as our family.
Personally, I have loved the company of friendly neighbors on my daily evening walks. My husband and I have felt very welcomed by our fellow homeowners, enjoying their company during neighborhood get-together or in backyard cookouts.
