Introducing...City of Parkland, FL!

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is part 2 of our series on the 2014 Best Intergenerational Communities Award-winners. Read part 1 and part 3

The City of Parkland's got more going for it than its red-tiled stucco and stone mansions, golf courses, lakes and beautiful tourists-attracting parks. It's where 24,000+ residents of all ages benefit from a variety of programs, services and special events. 

The annual Winter Talent Showcase is a community favorite. "We audition many people in our community to get the best talent for the show," explained Alexa Naidus, a former member of Parkland's Teen Advisory Group, who produces the event at the Aston Gardens nursing home. 

Long-time Parkland resident and volunteer Beatrice Hawe can't contain her joy for the community: "I have made many new friends and could not imagine spending my senior years living anywhere else." Stay tuned for next week, when we introduce The Greater Phoenix Region, AZ
