Why you'd want to live in Parkland
While oceanfront Fort Lauderdale is a city of blue, its neighbor, Parkland, shines as a city of green. West of Coconut Creek and sharing the east border with the Everglades, Parkland is a place dedicated to protecting its park areas. Nine parks span the city’s landscape, each providing recreation and relaxation opportunities for families within the community. Across town, from November through April, you can walk through the Parkland Farmers Market — the largest outdoor farmers market in the county. Two Sundays each month, people from the tri-county area flock to the Equestrian Center at Temple Park in central Parkland to buy organic and conventional produce, baked goods, unique gourmet items, cooking supplies, arts and crafts and more. Purchase some sweet farmer finds, then meander over to the Equestrian Center for a horseback riding lesson or a Sunday stroll.
