"Bit of everything"

I've lived here for a year now and I love it, some places are a bit dirty and a bit dodge but its super close to everything you need plus golf course and the river. I've got great city views and rent is cheap! Public transport could use some improvement, there are only 2 buses that go through Maylands and they only run once every hour or so which I think is pretty pathetic but the closer to Guildford road the better it gets. I've never had a problem with the people around this area, I've actually made a few neighbourhood friends and the area is super pet friendly! I love walking my dog along the river, and riverside gardens dog park is great, De Lacy Reserve is also amazing for socializing. Mozzies are pretty bad early in the morning and around 6-7pm though. I don't care for bars and pubs so that never really affected me but for someone who does, there is literally a dumpy old tavern and thats it. Falkirk ave / Coles car park is a nightmare, and the people are terrible drivers so avoid if you road rage easily! More cops than civilians.
