What Renters Like and Dislike About Parkland

i like the fact that everything you need is right around me. the bus route is a 2 minute walk away.a whole lot of stores .

My neighborhood is green with trees. I like to go to spuds, a pizza place. There are parks that are fun.

I lWe have a teriyaki restaurant that we all go to friends of mine and myself and have beer and teriyaki.

The zoo and aquarium are close by. Grocery stores and parks are within a few miles. There is lots of restaurants and a couple malls close by as well as a lot of great fishing/beach spots.

There is local coffee shops and restaurants very close by, and an active university community and church community close by.
