"Rosny is good if you like being alone"

An un-friendly, commuter suburb, with no community spirit, the sewage treatment plant stinks when on cyclepath, the footpaths are either non-existent or lack maintenance.It would be a great suburb for people who drive everywhere and don't like people. I lived in Hobart and I felt safe on the streets and could walk to the shops and talk to neighbours, Rosny is the opposite, you have to drive everywhere no shops or cafes, that is why I left and moved back to civilisation.

maryandh Having lived in Rosny for 30 years I must reply to the above comment. Rosny would be the best suburb in Hobart to live, close to all the amenities and the neighbourhood is very friendly - if you are friendly. We are discerning! I grant that the council can improve some of the pathways - just as other councils can improve their roads and pathways. We are close to the best primary school in the south and Clarence pool - great place to bring young children up. The sewage will now smell on occasions in the summer - but only since Southern Water has taken over, there is something in that. Coastalflower I think you have your blinkers on. I enjoy champers with my neighbour on quite a few occasions but never borrow a bowl of sugar, we don't do that in Rosny!
