Surely the residents of this diverse community who call Canyon Crest home will have to disagree. With its’ stable community, excellent school system, and surrounding amenities, this neighborhood leaves its’ residents with little to be desired.

Residents of Canyon Crest have access to an excellent school system and have a choice of one public school and two private. Additionally, the Canyon Crest Country Club offers its members tennis, golf, and swimming facilities as well as it offers nonmembers a beautiful location to hold events and weddings. These offerings coupled with the majority of housing being made up of single family homes allows this neighborhood to retain its’ small town charm despite its size.
