An affluent suburban city that boasts an array of real estate options, strict zoning, bike paths, and pristine parks, Parkland is a residential community that offers a tranquil and relaxed lifestyle in a paradise-like setting in Broward County.
Located in the northern part of the county, the suburb offers a total area of 12.8 square miles, of which 12.3 square miles is land and 0.50 square miles is water.
Its northern boundary coincides with the border between Broward and Palm Beach counties.
Oakland is west of Coconut Creek, shares an eastern border with the Everglades, and is three miles northeast of Coral Springs (center to center).
The community is also part of the Miami metropolitan area, only 37 miles north of Miami, Florida.
It is home to 35,265 residents as of the latest US Census.
A small but prosperous neighborhood that offers a distinct park-like nature and gorgeous natural beauty, Parkland is a suburban city of lakes and waterways and pleasant residential streets lined with impressive mature trees that provide shade and ambiance in the middle of the Miami metro area.
Naturally, as its name successfully conveys, you're bound to get your fair share of the great outdoors in Parkland.
Nine parks span the city's landscape, each providing recreation and relaxation opportunities for families within the community (and some scenic recreations along with it), making you feel like you're away from the hustle and bustle of the metro without actually being far from its creature comforts.
One of the park standouts is Pine Trails Park, which rests in the heart of the city and is known as one of Broward County's premiere recreation and sports facilities.
It is home to an amphitheater that hosts concerts and local events every month, including a resident favorite, "Eats 'n Beats," an event with two performances, 20 food trucks, and a can't-miss family environment.
After Pine Trails Park, make your way to another local park favorite, Liberty Park, for seven picturesque acres of outdoor fun!
Here, you'll discover an elaborate playground for the kids, pavilions for a casual family picnic, and Parkland's version of the Statue of Liberty for a few snaps.
Still up for some park-hopping?
Don't forget to drop by Covered Bridge Park, where you can enjoy a tranquil setting alongside a beautiful covered bridge.
The passive park offers the chance to commune with nature in a spectacular wooded environment, where visitors often see sightings of butterflies, birds, and turtles!
Meanwhile, across town, from November through April, you can walk through the Parkland Farmers' Market — the largest outdoor farmers' market of its kind in Broward.
It draws people from all over the region to the Equestrian Center at Temple Park, two Sundays each month, for unique shopping and fun.
Here, you can buy organic and conventional produce, baked goods, unique gourmet items, cooking supplies, arts and crafts, and more.
Purchase some sweet farmer finds, then meander to the Equestrian Center for a horseback riding lesson or a Sunday stroll.
Along with parks, outdoor sports are a significant part of Parkland, and apart from tennis, soccer, and volleyball, golf is one of the most popular local activities in Parkland.
And if you're up for it, there's no better place to go than Parkland Golf and Country Club!
Traditional in design with a strong Machenzie influence, Norman's Parkland course is an 18-hole private club reminiscent of Australia's great Sandbelt links, such as Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath.
The course design focuses on preserving a natural vegetative setting featuring three distinct zones of planting that mimic the area's natural habitats-- cypress swamps, low hammocks, and the pine flatland.
Parkland Golf and Country Club also features wall-to-wall use of Paspalum SeaDwarf grass.
And lastly, for a bit of Parkland shopping on the side, several strip malls like Shoppes of Parkland and Parkland Commons offer an array of shopping options, ranging from national retailers to unique boutiques.
Indeed, you'll never find yourself empty-handed during your Parkland trip, and you can even buy souvenirs for the folks back home!

Much like most suburbs, Parkland is made up mostly of quiet residential neighborhoods than commercial developments, and one of the greatest pleasures of living in this neighborhood is having such easy access to beautiful parks and scenic recreation areas.
Here, residents enjoy an active lifestyle, and you'll often see locals jogging, walking, and cycling through the city's tree-lined streets.
The city also has a warm South Florida climate, letting the locals spend most, if not all, of their time outdoors.
Well, with nine expansive parks to explore, even visitors will agree that there's a lot of adventure to be had on Parkland!
Pine Trails Park, for example, is the epicenter of sporting activity in the city, and many local children engage in baseball, soccer, and lacrosse leagues in this park.

Moving to Parkland also means you're under the Broward School District, a host to an extensive array of top-rated elementary, middle, and high schools.
Many schools in this district have excellent ratings, but only three of Broward School District's schools are within Parkland's perimeters.
Meanwhile, when getting around Parkland, public transportation isn't as scarce as in most suburbs, as the Broward County Transit has several routes through the city.
Many Parkland residents commute to the surrounding areas for work, with Miami less than an hour's drive away and Fort Lauderdale a 30-minute drive.
However, for daily errands and trips further afield, owning a car is advised, albeit traffic in Parkland isn't nearly as bad as in other parts of the Miami metro area.
You'll also notice a thriving community spirit in Parkland, and it seems like there's always going on in the community, like events and celebrations.

Parkland is also surrounded by several miles of equestrian trails, providing great opportunities for horse riding.
You also have tons of golf courses, and the beaches of South Florida are a short drive away, so you'll never run out of activities to do in and around the city, whether you're visiting or moving to Parkland!
Nestled in northern Broward County, Parkland offers several real estate options, including gated and non-gated communities surrounded by lakes and waterways, a beautiful natural setting, great schools, and a family-friendly vibe.
Outsiders may say the small city doesn't seem much, especially in terms of nightlife and attractions, yet Parkland residents say otherwise, especially those who prefer a tranquil and relaxed lifestyle.
But aside from its peaceful streets and natural beauty, there's a friendly, welcoming atmosphere in Parkland, along with a thriving community that strives to maintain a high quality of life.
