I love Kendale Lakes, it's a sweet neighborhood with nice homes and wonderful parks and schools. It is becoming more expensive which frankly is an attribute of Miami-Dade County rather than just Kendall or Kendale Lakes so be weary of that. I lived just a few block from where I live know as a youngster and I can honestly say nothing has changed, or, at the very least not for the worst!

Been living in Kendall Lakes and near by it for all my life. It's a surprisingly quiet and average community with the usual rowdiness in the night from the loud cars out. Nearby shopping plazas, such as the Kendall Lakes plaza, offers useful stores to buy furniture and great food services in case you want to do something interesting in the night. Overall, it's nothing special to live in, Hence the average score
For starters, the homely feeling of the entire neighborhood allows for one to feel at home even if you have never lived here(my mom recently moved in and she feels super relaxed!). The neighborhood is groomed and cleaned by a crew of leaf blowers, pool cleaners, and cutters hired by a company to keep our lawns and streets clean all the time, allowing for more fun to play outside!. Our safety is top notch too since many officers live in or around the area; I have walked alone from school back home at 11pm and either no one is around to cause trouble or there are officers making sure everything is under control. Overall it is a very relaxing and safe place with enough flexibility for a family lifestyle and friendly people around!
