Hi,

My husband and I are considering a move to FL. We are picking the neighborhood we live in based on the schools. From what I learned on schooldigger.com Parkland was one of the better schools in the SE area. Jupiter being the best and Boca and Wellington also up there. Our family is in Boynton and Boca so we'd like to stay within about 30 min. of those towns.

Are the schools really good in Parkland from E - HS? Is it safe? If anyone has info about Parkland please let me know. Thanks.

J

Parkland from my limited experience in the town and from what I've heard is a nice area with good schools. It's a pretty wealthy town and somewhat more rural than most of Broward (at least it was when I was there last). Downfalls are it's probably alittle boring and the new subdivisions look like any upscale suburb, but it's a good place for what it seems you're looking for -good schools/close to Boca & Boynton/safe etc.

We plan to move there in July of 2011 (from NJ). Checked out Boca, Delray and Weston and found Parkland to be more our speed.

I wouldn't call it rural. I've seen towns in Georgia that are rural. Parkland is like within 5-10 min from Coral Springs and/or Coconut Creek. The properties just have a lot more land than cramped Coconut Creek where the houses are practically arms distance from one another.
It's definitely upscale, for sure. Clean, orderly, well manicured.

No problem I see you're in NY. I'm from Queens, and lived on L.I. for 2 yrs.
Parkland is very nice.

Thumbs up Parkland...no press on here but should have!

OK, Parkland is one of the BEST BEST places to live in South FL and has one of the highest median incomes of any city in Broward. Fantastic schools, fantastic homes. Get with your RE and look around...you will not be disappointed.
