Well, I love Deerfield Beach the people here are great. There also could be a lot of improvement. Police should work better with the community. I would love to see more job opportunities and small business opportunities for minorities. I also would love to see more family orientated activities available to the residents. Overall Deerfield Becah is a wonderful place just needing minor improvements.

Deerfield Beach is a great place in which to grow up. Deerfield has many parks, beaches, and social activities in the community. The cost of living is more reasonable than some surrounding cities without giving up safety and amenities like parking on the public beach. Deerfield is concerned with the environment and practices recycling. The city provides beautification grants for its citizens and businesses and keeps the public areas clean and inviting. Although Deerfield has some excellent public schools, some need improvement to their curriculm, staff and physical plant.
I am a current resident of Deerfield Beach, been living here for 22years now, and I can honestly say the neighborhood isn't that bad as it may seem to others. Things have definitely lightened up then compared to the past. I have grew up here and will be raising my kids here as well, such development has been made in this community and I'm appalled! Keep it it up Deerfield Beach, love you! & oh don't forget our beach whewww!
