This study ascertained the degree of residents' satisfaction with the neighbourhood of Teleku-Bokazo, a MIDR in Ghana. The study also examined the relationship between the residents' perceived neighbourhood satisfaction and neighbourhood characteristics. A quantitative research design was used to achieve the study objectives. A total of one hundred and forty-six (146) responses were usable. Descriptive and inferential analysis was executed. More so, an exploratory factor analysis with a varimax rotation was also conducted. More so, correlational and regression analysis was done to address the study questions. Our study confirms the multidimensional nature of neighbourhood satisfaction. Social Environment and Infrastructural Services failed to predict neighbourhood satisfaction.
