Single-family ranch homes and multifamily complexes are dotted throughout the neighborhood. Lincoln Elementary School lies in the heart of the neighborhood. The first splash park, Cypress Spray Park, provides summer water fun for neighborhood children. The splash park has been a wonderful place to meet neighbors of all ages, races, and backgrounds. The Villager Mall is a convenient hub for grocery shopping, healthcare, and childcare. The Goodman South Public Library has undergone substantial renovation and is a great resource for the community.
