Parkland FL



About Parkland FL

The city was founded by Bruce B. Blount in 1963.  The original intent for the land was to be sold to people for agricultural use; for the raising of food, livestock, and other agricultural related services, as well as nursery goods.  That intent remains possible today in the AE-1 and AE-2 zoned areas of the city.

An upscale residential community, the City of Parkland, FL is located 3 miles northeast of Coral Springs and about 37 miles north of Miami, FL.  It is part of the Fort Lauderdale Metropolitan Area with a population of approximately 22,000 residents.  There is a large stable middle class in the city. In 2000, the median family income was $108,657. 

The Parkland residents can enjoy an active lifestyle with the available first-class leisure and cultural amenities and multi-use trails.  The zoning laws of Parkland are designed to protect the “park like” characteristic of the city.  For several years no stores existed in Parkland; today, however, that has changed.

Parkland Demographics

Even though it is part of a large metropolis, Parkland maintains a “hometown” feeling and offers excellent neighborhood schools, which adds to the family-friendly atmosphere. Even statistically, Parkland is a proven family friendly city.  About 76% of the adults are married and the size of households in the city is larger than most.  In fact, it seems that kids are everywhere in Parkland. 

Parkland is the “best educated city” in Florida proportionately.  The people of Parkland take pride that a rather large number of college graduates live within the city:  60.7% of adults hold an associate degree or higher.  Broward County Public Schools serve the educational needs for pre-K through 12th grade.

Parkland FL Real Estate

The city offers miles of equestrian trails which meander through wooded acreage where trees cover land formerly used by cattle ranchers.  Though appearing more rural, Parkland's residents are anything but “country”.  

The location is a convenient commute for people working in Miami, Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach because the Sawgrass Expressway runs along the southern border of the city, and gives easy access to South Florida's extensive freeway system.  White sand beaches and crystal blue turquoise waters are within 15 minutes.  And to appease the shopping urge, you can visit Coral Springs to the south, Boca Raton to the north.  In addition, a large variety of shopping and restaurant choices can be reached in an easy 10-minute drive from Parkland.
