Parkland, an ultra-exclusive suburb in northwest Broward County, just south of the Palm Beach County line and west of the Turnpike, is known as the “Relaxed City”, where zoning laws protect the park-like feel they are striving for. It’s a small (2006 Census estimate was 22,183), beautiful, and green residential community of new-construction mansions with small-scale commercial villages offering a hometown feeling and excellent neighborhood schools.
Residents enjoy first-class leisure and cultural amenities, including the Parkland Golf & Country Club, and its Audubon Garden, which is open to the public. Parkland is the best educated city in Florida, proportionately, with 61% of adult residents (25 and older) holding an associate degree or higher, and 53% of adults possessing a baccalaureate degree or higher (per 2000 Census). The median household income is $102,000+.
