We has an association and events thoughout the year to include all the neighbors families etc we are located near a college so there are also young adults
any age is welcome / young or old. Because I see all kind of people in my area.. My area is age-friendly because all age are welcome.. family neighborhood oriented. WE see parents, children and grandparents in same house.
I feel it's age friendly because of the diversity of people that live in the neighborhood from small children to adults, I have seen more adults then children.
