A gated community is a form of residential community containing controlled entrances for pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles, and sometimes known by a closed perimeter of walls and fences.
Gated communities can usually consist of small residential streets and include various amenities. For smaller communities this may be only a park or other common area. For larger communities, it may be possible for residents to stay within the community for most day-to-day activities. Gated communities are a type of common interest development, built by Real Estate Developers to appeal to buyers' desire for security and prestige.
