"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.

A Midwestern Family Moves to Parkland - 8/13/2014

Our family is from Chicago and we have been living here a year now. Our family settled in NE Parkland, which is considered the "older" section of town. I like it here! The library is a great resource. The city is pretty and well maintained. My location gives me great travel access to shops and surrounding communities and I am a 15 minute drive from the ocean. Snooty, superficial people? Sure, there are some, but who cares. The pros outweigh the cons by far! We send our kids to public schools and the quality of education is good, however my teens did experience more rude behavior here than in the Midwest. We choose to focus on church, family, and teaching our children that regardless of how others behave, they will be held to high standards.

Parkland people don't believe in common respect if - 7/5/2014

Lol u must not know to much about parkland because I work in parkland and yes it is very expensive. But you are wrong about the people. They are very rude. They don't know anything about respecting others because they feel like they don't have to respect anybody if they don't want to. If there having a bad day they like to disrespect people and think it's ok. I have worked all over Broward County and I have to tell you that this part of town (Parkland,Coral Springs,Coconut Creek) is the worst (as far as people) I would rather deal with people from plantation sunrise Tamarac ft lauderdale. Parkland has the type of people that when the police pull them over they say " what the hell did u pull me over for I didn't do anything wrong" like the cop is not doing his job. I seen a lady just the other day walking down the street with her a little five or six-year-old and her child was two blocks ahead of her and out of her sight so I told the lady you might want to watch your kid and not let him walk off like that she replied to me and told me that this is a good area nobody gets kidnapped around here. Those type of people live in their own little fantasy world Parkland is not reality reality is if you disrespect somebody there going to disrespect you back and don't be so surprised if somebody decides to punch you in the face because they're not going to tolerate your disrespect. And another thing they also like to judge people they look at somebody and they judge them and whatever they say is right I told a woman in the neighborhood that I work for that I'll my own business she told me that there's no way I can on my own business this person doesn't know anything about me but they already know that there's no way I can on my own business then after they judge you and they end up being wrong they want you to understand why they judged u as if it's ok. If u think parkland is a good place with good people then u must be Jewish. Yes they are very wealthy. They are very rich and snotty. The majority of them are people who were born rich and stayed rich they never had to work hard to get where they're at and own business mommy and daddy bought it for them and all they did was maintain it. Now don't get me wrong there are some nice people but the nice people you can tell those people are the ones that struggled to get to where there at. Those are the ones that you know had nothing and made it into the something verses the people that were born with the silver spoon in there mouth that feel like there better then other people because they have been wealthy all there life. You hold the door open for people around there and they look at you like if I don't want to say thank you I don't have to say thank you. Reality is expect the unexpected but In parkland they already know what to expect from people.

I'm a true florida native! Not the newbies who hav - 12/7/2010

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.
