"Hard to get into this suburb now"

Here’s an actual detailed description from someone who actually lives here.
My husband is born and raised here and we’ve owned our home here since 2001.
Kings Langley is a hard area to get into due to supply and demand. Houses sell quick.
Kings Langley is a very tight knit community.
Most of our neighbours were here well before us.
It’s rare to have new neighbours in our street.
For those saying it’s dangerous (obviously you don’t live here) i challenge anyone to try and congregate outside in the street you’d have police called immediately and this was pre Covid 19.
A lot of parents try to get into the school catchment just to attend KLPS. The daycare next door to it has waiting list over a year to get in, my kids were on the waitlist each time. Well worth the wait.
Very little turnover in that centre.
The owner of the daycare was a local to the area.
Wouldn’t move anywhere else. There are many parks. The best is endeavour park.
Has exercise equipment, playground, bbq, shelter, toilets, dog park. There was 2-3 parties on a day each weekend prior to Covid 19. Of course thugs want to hangout somewhere late at night somewhere nice and ruin nice things thats unfortunate. But These aren’t locals!
As I said if spotted they will be approached and told to leave or have police called. We report graffiti and the council will generally remove pretty quick.
In my time here I’ve only ever heard few incidents i have never personally seen any groups of people up to no good or anyone drinking or disturbing the peace.

The thing I appreciate is that we have everything on our doorstep.
At the kings Langley shop end theres both Coles and woolies, bakers delight, chemist, optometrist and now a new amazing Thai restaurant. There’s real estate agents, sushi, kebabs, subway, seafood shop, Chinese.
2 dentists, one in shop one just before the kings Langley shops.
There’s a beauty therapist that’s just opened up across from the shops too. 2 nail salons and couple hair salons and a barber and a medical centre.
These are fantastic medical centres here in kings Langley equipped with nurses and pathology and I think physio and most likely other services. I believe these two Medical centres are linked.
There’s a massage therapy place opened not long ago as well.

At the tennis court end (Solander rd) there’s a smaller shopping complex with convenient store, another medical centre, hairdresser, Chinese, fish and chip, new cafe, chemist, bottlo and butcher.
Pretty much you don’t have to go far!
If you love your Kmart and Aldi personally we prefer to head to Stanhope. Quick drive. We always get parking and straight in and out.
Maybe I’m biased here, but streets nearby endeavour park is the better part of kings Langley.
Convenient to walk to shops and main park and Possibly why I’ve not experienced any issues over the years.
If there is anything ever happening in kings Langley we hear it happening around Solander rd, Hutchinson cr, anywhere close to biketracks or backing onto the reserves where people can make a quick getaway.
But that’s if anything. I hardly hear many issues these day.

The kings Langley community are the type of community to drop food off to your doorstep during these trying times. Give you toilet paper and milk when the shelves are bare.
It’s a very helpful compassionate community, unfortunately not everyone in this world is nice. That’s everywhere though, for the most part it’s a kind community.
There is a kings Langley kings park neighbourhood watch group run by police that keep an eye out and the community communicate within that group to clamp down on anything unusual, any crime etc

Commuting is pretty easy.
There’s bustops everywhere.
You can get bus to the nearby train stations or directly where you need to go sometimes without even getting off.

One thing I love is being so close to the norwest private hospital.
We can get there in minutes.
My kids were born there. My husband, kids and I have had elective surgeries there. Fantastic can’t rate the hospital enough. Our specialists work out of there. If you’re expecting, norwest cbd area has so many Obstetricians and most work out of norwest private.
To get blood tests or ultrasounds they are all right there in the norwest vicinity.
Minutes drive from your house. So convenient.

As for NBN well we’ve worked from home last 2 years. We are with Optus and little to no issues at all.
Great speeds. Only Issues have been planned work.

If you’re a city slicker maybe it’s not your cup of tea. If you like a very clean green suburban neighbourly family type community suburb than that’s what kings Langley is.
