Things that make a gated community go from ‘okay’ to amazing

If you live in a gated community, consider yourself to be someone who is privileged. Gated communities have so many benefits in terms of safety and quality of life. If you are looking into moving into a gated and are curious about what exactly you should look out for, then you are in the right place. Keep on reading this post, we have listed a few amenities that you most definitely want in your new neighborhood. 

Regular security

The main reason people decide to live in gated communities is because of the safety that comes with it. However, you have to be wary about that because not all gated communities have a regular, decent security system. Some places even rely on a single security guard to maintain access control. If you want to know if the place you are thinking about moving into takes its security seriously, ask how they are maintaining access control into the gated community. If the answer with ‘a long range RFID system’ know you are in good hands. If you aren’t too familiar with that technology, visit nedapidentification.com to find out more.

An play area for kids

Many families move into gated communities, and if you are moving in with your own family and you have young kids, having somewhere outside they can spend time at would be a huge plus. This can also greatly add to the social development of kids. They will want to play outside with the other kids of the neighborhood most likely, and having a designated and safe area to do so will be nice. It can also be great for the parents to take a break from their kids once in a while, it’ll be healthy for both parties, kids and parents.

A gym

This can be pretty hard to find in certain countries’ gated communities, but if you manage to find one that has a gym, you have lucked out completely. If you have a full time job as well as kids, it can be hard to balance physical activity along with all of that. So, having a gym nearby can be very useful. Even if you don’t have kids, a full time job is a lot of work on its own as well, and man people don’t have the time to go to a gym that is a bit away from home. But the closer it is, the more likely you’ll be using it. It can also be a great place to make friends with the other people in the community.
