"Pleasure in Parkland"

You should do a report on Parkland. It began as a beautiful horse/polo community and was considered "the boonies" from as close as Coral Springs until 2000. Due to the booming housing industry, it has been undergoing a sweeping change. Beautiful homes, golf courses, great schools, many family activities, new restaurants and a few strip malls are in process of being built to meet the needs of the area.

Being a well-planned development, it has stringent city ordinances (and only 2 street lights!. The community is highly desired because of its reputation.

Housing and cost of living is expensive here. Only the strong survive. :-)

Unfortunately, the beauty that used to showcase the entrance into Parkland has been sullied by a 24/7 rip through the forests just for the greed of Walmart. Bus stops have been added to allow beggars to haunt the corners of our once clean streets. Parkland is no longer as safe and remote and we loved it to be. They also put in a BJ's and pretty much ruined all 4 corners of 441 and HIllsboro. The powers that be have let in businesses, which weren't allowed years ago. Don't bother with Parkland anymore. It's gone downhill in a most unflattering way.

Parkland is a great place to live. The only setback is the cost of everything. Buying a house is extremely high over here. Even renting is pretty high too. Great schools and people.

Not a nice place to live - 2/2/2008

Parkland is a very expensive place to live and the people for the most part are very unfriendly and in most cases very mean and rude. My wife was informed in a local store that b/c we are not Jewish we should leave the area. I observed and heard at another home improvemnt store a customer state to the cashier " If you break a leaf on that plant; you are in for a world of hurt". The cashier was attempting to carefully scan the bar code to ring up the plant. Most people always push themselves adhead of you and never appolgize for their rudeness. We would already have moved, but can not sell our home, b/c of the poor business climate. South Florida used to be a great place to live, but the crime, taxes and prices have destroyed the entire area. Our Property Taxes are over $19,000 per year and the house is only 3400 sq. feet. If you do not speak Spanish, do not to to Miami.
