"A central suburb with a country town mentality"

I've lived in Woodbridge for just over a year now. The suburb is perfectly located on the train line. We have two awesome schools in Woodbridge and Guilford Grammar is on our border. All major hwys and freeways are a stone throw away. Midland and Guilford are our neighbouring suburbs, both locations boast beautiful cafes, restaurants and bars. Woodbridge is a family and pet friendly suburb with every one willing to have a chat at the drop of a hat. The suburb has lots of parks and beautiful walks. The City of Swan doesn't maintain the suburb, especially the older part of Woodbridge and fighting for them to clean up the area is a struggle. We do have some crime, graffiti and drug dealing seems to be our main two areas of concern. Woodbridge is under a flight path and the grain trains run through also both creating a lot of noise.

I'm happy I purchased my first home here but I do have fears in regards to selling as I don't think the suburb is desired.

"Woodbridge"

I have lived in Woodbridge for 23 years and found it to be friendly and welcoming. My street is quiet but also has alot a foot trafic on weekends with families walking down the streets for a family stroll. The out look over the Swan River is amazing and the parks and walk ways are safe. There is alot of history in the old railway workshops and it is good to see that all the old buildings have not been demolished but revamped with a new building inside and the old walls left standing.It is so close to the Swan Valley with all the wineary and restaurants.
I have not driven my car into Perth in all the time I have lived here, The train is so easy and no hassels with parking. Midland has so much to offer now I don't need to travel into Perth or any other area for shopping.
Woodbridge was the old West Midland but with the name change so has so much more. Give it a go, you'll love it.
