Schwarmendigen - Place to live ??


I have been offered an apartment to rent near Schwarmendigen Mitte, close to 9 tram.
The apartment is for my family with 2 small kids ( under 4yrs ).

Can anybody offer and advise on what its like to live in Schwarmendigen area, parks, schools, safety, etc ?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Schwarmendigen - Place to live ??

By Swiss standards, it's a problematic neighborhood. In Frankfurt, the same would be middle class. Schwamendingen is ok, as long as you can avoid the airport noise (hint: look at a map of Zurich, draw a line from the runway across Schwamendingen, avoid everything 500m right and left of it). Schools are there, parks and the Zuriberg are close (you can walk to the Zoo), daily shopping is nearby, as are the Glatt shopping centre (best of CH) and IKEA.

It's the ghetto of Zurich. But still very nice I wouldn't say no to the chance you have to move there.
