Farmers Branch has lot of opportunities for small groups of people. For example, the local recreation center has groups for elderly people and toddlers, but few for teenagers. It's a relatively small town, so there's a large sense of community. If you go to the grocery store and dinner, you'll probably see someone you know or at least recognize. The city tries very hard to plan events like Date Night in The Park, and despite feeling a bit run down it really fosters a sense of community. It stays clean and feels safe at night, but there are definitely areas that could use a remodel. Overall, it may not be the best, but it is a definitely a stable foundation where you can build a life.

Farmers Branch is a great place for families! The city always has events for families to attend on holidays! The city itself is very responsible of its residents. Beautiful houses, friendly neighbors, everything is close which makes it very convenient! The city is well taken care of! The schools are wonderful, the recreation center is very involved in helping the kids around! Police is very helpful!
I have been a Farmers Branch resident for over 20 years. The small business community is a close-knit community full of loyal customers. The neighborhoods near my residence are mainly well-kept with more people coming and going than I can remember over the last couple years. Perhaps this is because of the yearly rise in property taxes, but we have yet to see the commercial development needed to continue growing the city. The city really should address the vacancies in shopping centers and parking lots. This is a blemish for the city as a whole and detracts would-be families from being able to call Farmers Branch home with cities like Addison, Carrollton, Coppell, Lewisville, and others all within a 10 minute drive. This city needs some youth and vigor to add or I fear more and more potential families will elect to live elsewhere, stifling any commercial development opportunities and starving the community of economic growth for years to come.
