Very quiet, for the most part. You can verify, online, that the crime rate is rather low... Depending on the area you plan to buy the home, neighborhoods appear to be "mixed" with single family, mixed and multi-family homes and apartments. I have lived in the area for about 5 years, was not initially impressed buy the appearance of the immediate area but it is easy to feel at ease here, depending on where you come from. Let's put it this way, if you lived in Los Angeles, you would hear helicopters and sirens daily and if you lived in New York, there is the constant noise of the never - ending- city... the area is almost eerily quiet. As far as walkability is concerned, sidewalks are going up and there seems to be an attempt to make it more hospitable to pedestrians but it is not clear whether the intent to keep it quiet or to offer more accessibility to Downtown Coral Springs. Honestly, it is not a bad area to live if you just want to go home and have some peace and quiet but it could be so much more. I stay because my landlord is great and the area is comfortable. I will eventually leave for a more walkable area and neighborly environment... It needs a "draw" or some interesting lighting like Culver City, California to encourage people to get out of doors and mingle. Just my humble opinion. Hope it helps.
