I live in Mohammadia formerly known as Cinq Maison.
It's a fairly mixed housing area with everything from small overcrowded flats in huge blocks on run down estates over decent size ones to huge villas. Flat prices higher than other areas but not as high as in the center.
Likewise the population is mixed from not so well off to rich. There are sisters dressed all in black with Niqab, others wearing the more common tight abaya with khimar to women wearing jeans or mini skirts. Men likewise a lot of thawb, others trousers, to those that wear french suits.
Plenty of schools around of all levels.
Small shops clustered together in two parts, a tiny crowded market with overpriced veg and fruit, Pretemps. The area is a bit expensive, people with cars go shopping in other markets like Bachjarrah, Sorical (spelling ?) and Boumati (spelling ?). A big supermarket has been built but has not opened yet. Many of the smaller shops and restaurants (plenty of those) keep changing owners and goods sold.
Plenty of doctors, usually one does not have to wait more than an hour or two at most. There is a Centre de sante. No hospital, the nearest one is in Belfort (I am not recommending that one).
Many buses going in all directions incl straight to the centre. Tramway is being built, probably a few more months before it runs here. The nearest train station is at the Hippodrome (horse race course) and Islamic University.
There is a isolated beach, not safe for women and kids, and not clean anyway. Men use it for fishing, and couples too, wild dogs live there.
A large mosque with halaqa for sisters, classes for kids, Dar al Iman.
A motorway is passing on one side, a route nationale on the other, also with lots of people shopping at Pretemps, traffic is bad, parking not easy to find at busy times.
The Safex (exhibition center) can be found here on the other side of the motorway, plenty of exhibitions going on, we use it mostly as a playground, were the kids can kick a ball around without having to worry about cars. The Dream Parc (funfair) is situated inside.
Next to the Safex is the Hilton hotel, inside the British Embassy. (For your papers you have to go to the British consulate though.)
Playgrounds, forget it, what little there is, is mostly damaged, unsafe to use.
