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.

The Community of Cypresshead is a terrible place to live. There are many reasons but my top reason is because of our Security Guards issue tickets to the homeowners due to the Management requesting it . Cypresshead is an unfriendly Managed HOA. I was issued a $100 ticket for not stopping at a stop sign for a full 3 seconds by the Cypresshead Security. All my friends that live in the community have been given non sense tickets too. It’s very hard to sell your home in this community.
BEWARE of this Place!
Parkland, truly the city of parks. This city is beautifully up kept, the landscape is manicured and roads aligned with Floridian Palms. Besides rainy days you will see the sidewalks lined with those who exercise daily. Parklands residents are polite, considerate and caring for not only themselves, but their surrounding community.
