If the 55+ age group is over 80%, you can move to The Villages. No children under age 19 may live with you. The Villages of Parkwood is a family community for those with younger children.Visit www.myvillagesconnection.com and post your questions there. A very friendly Villages forum with folks that are more than happy to answer any questions!!

I guess Parkwood is okay. The amenities are promised, but in this economy, not necessarily delivered. The prices are unbeatable, but the square footage is small and the homes are built on top of one another. The neighborhood next door is Bison Valley and is built by the Villages. You don't have Villages amenities access, but you have a legal golf cart path and the benefits of a trusted, local builder.

I live in The Villages and I am very familiar with the Villages of Parkwood. Without going into detail I will just say NOT TO BUY THERE. They don't stand behind their word. We are in the process of getting a lawyer to get back our downpayment.

No it is a family development. Stay away from the Villages of Parkwood. They make big promises and don't deliver.

Would love to have a name at the attorney general's office. I have also had problems, and know of two others, and would be very interested in talking to someone.

would never do that. I don;t even like the Villages --too big and health care is not the best. There are other areas if you want to stuck in the middle of the state and have to Travel to Jacksonville and Gainesville for good health care...Think about it. Ok for the winter...sold the house got out and much happier. Now I rent in an area that has good services and close the door and leave.....

I just purchase a Gardinia and made some modification I wanted! The house was delivered/finished 2 weeks late due to weather.
They charged me very little to do "ALL" the changes I asked for and did a great job with it all!
The club house/pool area is well on the way and looking very nice, it was only dirt when they started building my house.
Since we closed a few months ago they already builded many more houses...
I saw no evidence of false promises or lies and they build a very good quality house for the price!!!
I have a golf cart and an electric car, that takes me most places around THE VILLAGES.
No, I have no affiliation with the developer/builder, I'm just a happy owner!
Like everything else, if you buy make sure you read and understand the contract before signing it...It's all there black on white.
I hope this is helpfull ;-)
