Some parts of Birdwood are okay (on the river and quite expensive) other parts are not so nice. I know of people who would love to live in nicer and newer parts of Blue Haven but cannot afford the higher rent. On the bright side Birdwood is at the far edge of Blue Haven so you don't get the through traffic.
Birdwood is one of the quieter streets,I have owned my house Birdwood for 7 years now, I am surrounded by owner occupied properties and that makes a huge difference,also we don't have alleyways like the newer area, and we have huge blocks so you can have a argument in private .Scum will surface in any suburb but generally once the rent rises due to demand they move on.
Hi i haved in Blue Haven for 12 years I'm a home owner when we 1st moved in the only problem we had was under age drinkers that would walk through the streets at night damaging letterboxes, trees etc, but over the years where i live it's been great know other than the occasional party it's like the area has grown up and with the rental prices aswell so it weeds out the trouble makers which i think it has done, as for Birdwood Drive i can't really comment but my friend that lives in Mckellar usually says when it rains the nuts come out and like to speed in the wet and slide when turning oh well hope that helps,janet
