Parkland is an affluent city in Broward County, where zoning laws are designed to protect the "parklike" character of the city. Initially, there were no stores or traffic lights in Parkland, though this changed in the early 2000s. As of the 2010 census, (the 2010 United States Census, known as "Census 2010", is the twenty-third and most recent United States national census) the population of Parkland was 23,962. It is part of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area, which was home to 5,564,635 people at the 2010 census.

As recently as the 1990s Parkland was regarded as something of a rural enclave within highly urbanized South Florida. In more recent years however, residential gated communities, executive homes, and suburban McMansion-style housing have come to characterize much of the city's landscape. Nevertheless, small farms and equestrian ranches continue to exist and operate inside the city limits, often in close proximity to newer housing developments.
