Lakewood Heights, Hickey Road, Loch Lomond, Greenwood, Golden Grove
Forested. Family. Lakes.
With winding walkable suburban streets, lots of sports fields, and no shortage of shopping options, this is an easy place for families to call home. With countless hiking trails through the back woods, lakes to explore, and the beach at the Little River Reservoir, it’s also an easy place to be active in nature. A somewhat spread-out suburban area, residents here do largely depend on their vehicles.
When Forest Hills was developed in the mid-50s, on the hills to the south of the Great Marsh, it was promoted as having incredible views of the marshlands. Of course, the Parkway Mall, McAllister Place and East Point Shopping malls now occupy that land.
Many of the homes in Lakewood Heights and Greenwood were built beginning in the early 60s by two brothers, Harold and Eddie McNamara, who lived on Loch Lomond Road. The land was not open farmland, as is often the case with suburban development but instead heavily forested. It took many years for roads to be laid out and for the area to reach its current size. It is still expanding into the woodlands.
