A neighborhood generally is characterized based on the layout, planning, amenities and most importantly the people that reside therein. The neighborhood I live is a newly developed community located in Laurel, Maryland, the houses in the neighborhood varies in design, style and is a residential community with mostly single-family homes. The neighborhood looks like a transition from farmland to residential communities; the area attracts young and working class people because of the outstanding school system, accessibility to major roads and nearby cities and also shopping and business districts, it is a diverse neighborhood. The neighborhood is located in close proximity to the Washington DC and Baltimore City area both major business and shopping centers. However, because the area is newly developed, most of the amenities are still in developing stage. The landscaping, playground and security need improvement. The playgrounds lack play materials for the children, this was a yearly occurrence and one would think a solving, no matter how small would have been thought up before then.

If children play rough on either of the swing sets or the seesaw by jumping or running nearby the equipments, they are in serious risk of potentially injuries. The swing sets need to be more secured put more mulch on the ground and the seesaw needs to be mounted above a soft surface for safer play.
Secondly, the landscaping needs some urgent attention, the roads that lead to the neighborhood and the
