This city is booming with new economic opportunities! I have lived in Miami Gardens, with my family, for almost seven years. Our communities are very close-knit and everyone gets along. There are numerous programs and jobs for you to partake in, as a way to avoid trouble, and have a "safe-space" to be themselves.

I have lived in Miami Gardens for the past 19 years. The city of Miami Gardens has grown immensely. One of my favorite things about Miami Gardens is the convenience of having shops, restaurants and entertainment easily accessible and close to homes. Also, considering the traffic in Miami, Miami Gardens has much less traffic than nearby cities. This is very beneficial and this convenience is one of the things I love about Miami Gardens. My kids attended public schools in the city of Miami Gardens and they both excel. Unfortunately they encounter a little of bulling while in school, at the end it went fine. If there was one thing I could change about Miami Gardens is the image people perceive of violence. I will admit there is violence and it needs to be worked on but now days violence is something everyone deals with everywhere in the country.
I love how everything in Miami Gardens is so convenient and close. It is also very family friendly and has many events that draw positive attention to the community. What I believe should change is the amount of violence that goes on in the nighttime. There are several times where gunshots would go off in the middle of the night. Therefore, there should be stricter enforcement at nighttime.
