I have been born and raised in The Hammocks. I know no other place as my home. It is a very safe community, thanks to the amazing work of the MDPD Hammocks District Station. We have alot of unique treasures in our community, like the Kendall Ice Arena, Miami's only ice sports center. Some of our local restaurants are truly five stars, like Bonjour Bakery and Amici's. I only wish I could see more job opportunities and investments in The Hammocks. Most people have to drive far away to their jobs in Coral Gables and Downtown Miami. Overall, I love The Hammocks and I would not live anywhere else.

I have mixed feelings with The Hammocks. Growing up here during my childhood, I attended the school in the area and would hang out with friends after hours. There is not much to do in The Hammocks- except go to restaurants, or an ice skating arena. I thought it was cool to be so close to an ice arena, considering there aren't many in South Florida. My favorite part about living here was mainly the Hammocks Lake. It is honestly such a beautiful and tranquil scenery. The lake goes on for miles, and many people run, bike, or hang out at the tikka huts. Those are the parts I miss about growing up here. The neighborhoods are incredibly family friendly, and the area has a lot of retired people. The only issue is that it is very far from the exciting parts of Miami, and the cost of living here has risen to extravagant rates throughout the years.
I have been living in The Hammocks over 18 years and have never had an issue. For the most part, it is quite a safe area to live in. It has many nearby schools, shops, parks, and even a hospital. I enjoy living in The Hammocks because it is still the city but also has a more suburb feeling which is great for families!
