"No go"

I lived here approx 2 years ago so this review may be outdated.
This suburb is reasonably close to the city but access to the freeway is time consuming.
Air traffic over the suburb was horrendous.
The local shop is run down and expensive. The closest woolies and coles are in Riverton.
There was an amazing tavern here for a while with cheap drinks, food and live music. It was knocked down 6 mo after I moved in and replaced with a new housing development.
Be very careful where you move to as even the nicer parts are backed onto by dodgy areas. Barking dogs and parents screaming at their children were common.
I did not feel safe here at night.

"Brilliant lynwood"

My young family and I have lived here for two years now and I wish we moved here earlier.Our kids go to the local primary school which is pretty much new and couldn't be happier.The school is fresh,professional,safe and very much progressive and on the rise.
Spoilt for shopping options with RIverton stock land 2mins down high rd and Westfield carousel 2mins the other way.lynwood village has a supa iga,chemist,newsagent,post office and more including a top little fish and chip shop which everyone loves.The best cafe strip in perth Victoria park is 5mins away the city is 10mins away.Lynwood is so close to everything.
But what I love is the parks,the little creek which runs through lynwood with paths and little bridges all the way down until you hit canning river only 1k away.the playgrounds are great including the whopping new one on the creek bridge at Iveston st.
House prices have risen dramatically due to people obviously getting word about the area,size of the blocks and their potential.on the schemes of the market though still reasonably affordable and you will get a lot moe bang for your buck.
I couldn't recommend lynwood enough,it's an amazing spot and hidden out of the way of the rat race yet so close to everything.so quiet and relaxing.
Awesome for younger families especially!!!

"Beautiful spot"

Lovely older suburb.But in last 2-5years a lot of younger families buying in with renovating,subdividing etc going on.New primary school has helped huge.10-15mins from city,2mins from carousel or stock land the other way.Plenty of parks and creek walks,river just down road also.Just a top spot!Id recommend to anyone especially younger families.Prices have risen quite dramatically though.
