Is the area near Midland Elementary school a nice area? How about the area near the community park?
I always thought of Poway as sort a Stepford-like place where everyone drove a big black SUV or Volvo with a W’04 sticker on the bumper. But I actually drove around some Poway neighborhoods recently and saw some areas that looked more like regular folks live there, ie places where I’d like to live if it weren’t so hot in the summer.September 22, 2006 at 6:14 PM #36130powaysellerParticipant
I live next to the Community Park. Mainly, this area is the lower priced part of Poway, and the schools have the lowest test scores in our district. But the area is well maintained by the City, so the landscaping is very nice. The park at Midland is quiet and beautiful.
Last weekend, the Poway Days Parade drews many people, and it concluded with a 15 min. fireworks show that I watched from my backyard. I was amazed: the September Poway fireworks were 10x better than the 4th of July display at SeaWorld this year. Poway’s budget is in the black, and it shows. Next weekend is the Poway Rodeo.
If you live near Midland, you will find a quiet safe area, near trails and shopping, bike lanes, community events, etc. My sons and I ride our bikes up Midland Rd to his school (he doesn’t attend the school we are zoned for, right across the street; it has the lowest test scores in Poway).September 22, 2006 at 9:15 PM #36144barnaby33Participant
Poway is a big place. I always thought of it as kidney bean shaped, sort of a big U, running from Espola rd on the north to poway road on the south. Its filled in alot since I graduated from high school though. It seemed to me that it was always a pretty middle class area, except for Garden rd. That was where the WT lived. Maybe things have changed, areas have shifted? It was definitely conservative.

…or Volvo with a W’04 sticker on the bumper.
Demographically speaking, Volvos are definitely favored by left-of-center types.
