Parkland is convenient to all 3 levels of public schools. It is a small pocket subdivision with fairly short streets which usually result in safer streets for your kids or pets. It is also reasonably close to Grocery and other shopping on Gardens St. as well as Dairy Rd. You can check some online sites for crime rates in the area as well as a call to local law enforcement on the regular number(not the emergency line!) to discuss crime in that area, streets, or address. I hope this is helpful!
