I've lived in Parker for the past 18 years, and its a wonderful small town. Everything is less than 5 minutes away with very little traffic. Right next to the Colorado River for watercraft fun, and desert fun as well! The only down fall is that we wish there were more opportunities here. More work options, more food, options, etc. We may have the basics, but the basics is great.
