"FREE from HELL!!!"
Don't let the peacefulness fool you! We lived in the Ferns Meadows neighborhood for three years. I had to place my children in private school, because at the public school they went to, they all got bullied by their classmates that were in gangs. The schools in this area are rated as one of the worst in Brevard County. There are no shopping malls, entertainment places, or hospitals around this area. You have to drive far to take your family to a decent place. My home was broke into twice while I lived there and they also broke into my husbands car. A couple of the neighbors also had robbers break into their properties. You get the bums very often from Cocoa, knocking on your door begging for food and money. My neighbors five year old daughter almost got rapped by a bum. You have to keep an eye on your kids when they play outside, because there are some gators in the lake and bums that often roam around the neighborhood. When we bought this house, we wished we had done research about the area. I can say that we had no problems with the neighbors they were all nice and kept their lawns tidy. We sold our house two months ago, and took a huge lost. We don't regret it! We purchased a home in Viera, they have the best schools in Brevard County. There is so much to do there, and crime is very low. Safety is very important for us to raise our family.
