It's a small town with everything that goes with it, with the exception being pretty good internet. There aren't many places to work either, but if you're willing to commute its a pretty alright place.

Very safe farm town. School system is OK. Not a lot to do (bars, cattle, ice fishing, fishing, walking)
I really like the small town feel you get in Parker. We live in a neighborhood where everyone knows each other and we have get togethers in the summer time. The school feels like a community and everyone works together to make it a better place.
