Tamarac, FL - We Have it All! 4.5 rating By Anonymous ( Jan 30, 2012) Ah...peace and serenity. We are at our new home at last. Tamarac, noted for its beautiful parks and recreational areas, offers comfort and quiet in the midst of the hub of activity along Florida's Atlantic seaboard.

The parks are wonderful! There are events and services for any
...Read More age group. We have classes, sports events, safe fun and leisure. Best of all, many of the programs offer seniors and others quality activities where newcomers, such as my husband and I, can meet and form new friendships.

We met Jim and Mary in a computer class for seniors. Discovering that we all enjoyed dancing, we joined a Jazzercise class, getting in shape for a night out at one of the wonderful restaurants with dance floors and bands. We barbeque in the park, walk our pets in the dog park and hike on the trails.

Our grandchildren are visiting soon. We can't wait to take them to the sports events, the nature study kiosk and the fishing pier. They've already asked us about the hockey rink and the hiking paths. These children are enthusiasts, and here we have the entertainment they'll love!

When we retired to Tamarac, we thought our more adventurous days were over. And yes, we really enjoy the many interesting activities in our area. But guess what! We have, of all things, become cops! Yes! Tamarac's county has a volunteer Citizens Observer Patrol, the eyes of the community. We're effective; we help keep crime at bay--and we get to wear uniforms! Our usefulness isn't over, yet!

In Tamarac we have it all! Read Less
