The houses are largely two-story homes, many with colonial-style design. Pearl Park is commonly used for little league soccer, football, hockey and baseball.
Pearl Park is in the geographic center of the neighborhood. The park was renovated in the late ‘90s and today offers many amenities such as baseball, football and soccer fields; tennis courts and a playground.
