Hi I will be moving this summer to Punta Gorda with a young child. I know Punts Gorda is known as a retirement community. I am hoping to find neighborhood that at least has some kids and families. So far I have seem nice listings for Waterford, Deep Creek, Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store. I would appreciate any advice on which of these areas or other areas in PG are best for young kids. Thanks

I live in Deep Creek. I would not consider this an ideal place to raise small children. There are children here of course, I see them on my morning walk waiting on the school bus(used to that is). That said, the vibe here is a mixture of active 30-50 year olds and “get off my lawn” geezers. I’m 65 going on 21, so I relate better to the younger crowd IMO.

I peruse the local Nextdoor site from time to time and I have to say there are some real dandy's here. Plus, there are deed restrictions here which may or may not be your cup of tea. They are not enforced consistently, which is a major point of contention among residents.

Best wishes on your search.

Quite a few families with kids in Creekside. It’s a nice neighborhood.

North Port might be a good option for you, as well as the West Villages (between North Port & Venice) communities such as Grand Palm, Stoneybrook, Island Walk, etc... might also be more fitting, as they have lots of families
