I used to like Ada, now I don't. The crime has been climbing due to drugs. People say its because we are a college town. This place used to be like a really nice small town feel. Rich people have been moving in and now its growing and its lost that. Doctors are plentiful but they seem to be not so good and very inexperienced. It has a movie theater and lots of fast food and a nice park but thats all there is to do.

The park stood out. It used to have a zoo type place. For a small town it even had monkeys. they let the monkeys die and the petting zoo is closed. The park is surrounded by a small lake which is the favorite of mine. The city keeps it clean.
