Parkland, Florida, is a city in Broward County. Its name originated from the fact that it has a “park-like” atmosphere that’s protected by zoning laws. Parkland has over 30,000 people, which reflects its homey, small-town environment. Though it’s a small city, it has a fairly high percentage of people who telecommute: about 11 percent.

Pine Trails Park is where you’ll see lots of families because it’s the most popular park in town. It’s no surprise why many people like it; there’s so much to do in the park. It has sports fields and courts, concessions, a playground, barbecue grills, a pavilion, open space areas and meeting rooms.
