The Popular Dunlap Neighborhood of Sommer Place
Sommer Place is a very popular subdivision within the Dunlap school district. It is located close to the Shoppes at Grand Prairie Mall and has a number of really great attributes. For starters, it has an awesome park tucked into the back south side of the subdivision. The park offers tennis courts, a fishing pond, baseball, soccer, a small skate park, pavilion, playground, basketball courts, and a beautiful 1 mile meandering paved trail through the woods! It is owned and maintained by the Peoria Park District since the park and the neighborhood are both within the city of Peoria, despite having an Edwards mailing address. Confusing right? :) Another nice feature we like with this park is that not only is it a huge park, but it is surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of acres of even more park district property on three sides. What is nice about this is that there will only ever be about 10 homes that will ever back up to this park-keeping it a very heavily wooded and natural setting. Ok-enough about the park. You can't live in the park, so let's move on to the homes.

Sommer Place is a large neighborhood with a small neighborhood appeal. By this we mean that there will be about 500 homes when the subdivision is completed, and it is over half way there at this point. However, because of a very active neighborhood association (dues usually run around $150 a year), neighborhood website and Facebook page, (both are private-you have to live in the neigborhood to get acess) there is a lot always going on. From the official social functions that this past year included Halloween parties, a 5K running race, ice cream socials, and picnics, etc. to a rotating backyard/driveway potluck party that is held every Friday night throughout the summer. Beyond that there are a lot of play groups, bunko and euchre groups, book clubs, girls night out events, etc. It's a great place for interaction. Have a hobby? Post it on the Facebook page and you are bound to find some neighbors with similar interests. How do we know so much about the neighborhood? We decided to call it our home as well! It's located off of Koerner Road, just 1.5 miles from the Shoppes at Grand Priairie, with easy interstate access making downtown Peoria a quick 12 minute traffic free commute. It's also easily accessible to Caterpillar's Mossville facility, which is only 15 minutes away.
