One of South Florida's best kept secrets, Parkland is a tranquil city nestled in a serene, wooded environment in Northwest Broward County just 25 minutes from the Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale International Airport. This unique city was incorporated in 1963 and is also predominantly an upscale bedroom community with a small portion zoned to develop commercial and industrial land.
The current population of Parkland is approximately 24,000 on just 8.5 square miles. Long-term projections estimate an eventual population of approximately 30,000 residents, although city leaders have taken a slow-growth, well-planned approach to expansion in order to maintain Parkland's small town flavor.
In keeping with the family oriented atmosphere, Parkland has an excellent system of parks including a state-of-the-art, 97-acre Equestrian Center featuring riding classes, clinics, dressage competition and monthly circuit shows. The park system also includes multipurpose trails, bike paths and a 5.5-acre park featuring a variety of sports. Parkland schools-- especially the public school system-- boast some of the most highly regarded schools in Broward County.
