The nearest municipal primary school is Sjöparksskolan, which is a couple of hundred meters from the residential area, and has pupils in grades 7-9. Municipal preschools and upper secondary schools are within walking distance.

Within a 2-minute walk is the nearest grocery store, next to it also a manned gas station.
