In its modern form, a gated community (or walled community) is a form of residential community or housing estate containing strictly controlled entrances for pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles.

Gated communities are often characterized by a closed perimeter of walls and fences. Traditionally, walls and gates have separated quarters of some cities for centuries. Gated communities usually consist of small residential streets and include various shared amenities (such as parks and walking areas)
