One of the many things that I love about Parkland is how active the residents are! Just driving through the town, you can see many families going for walks, couples playing tennis, and friends playing golf! The town itself is beautiful and is perfectly in the middle of very important cities such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

I moved her about a year and a half ago, and so far I've yet to find much wrong with it. I used to live in Coral Springs, and it's much cheaper, but also doesn't have many great schools or as many safety measures. In Parkland, I live in a community with guards now, and it feels much safer than anybody just being allowed to come in and out, however they please. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, though a bit too strict now, is an amazing school, with a lot to offer in education, activities, and diversity. Overall, I'd say I'd give my experience here a solid A, because as always, nothing is ever perfect, cost of living is extremely high. But it's worth it, because it's a beautiful place full of beautiful people.
The community in general is very clean and there is an abundance of trees, grass and flowers along the streets. The community is not very crowded and is still developing with new construction houses being built. The community is rather active in politics due to the incident in 2018. Overall the community is very good but shopping around is a little far between shops.
