What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Palmona Park

I really tryuly like the community that I'm in. I've met a lot of good people here. the type of activities that are here are things like bingo, karaoke, poolside lunches.

My neighborhood is special because of its neighbors, it's very quiet and the people are very polite, I like that I can walk to the main stores

High rise condos. Older people, majority are snow birds. Living the dream. Located on the river which leads to the gulf.

I like in a high rise condo overlooking the Calooshatchee River. The scenery is fantastic. At night you see the bridges lite up along with Fort Myers.
