Parkland is known for its zoning laws, which are designed to protect the "park-like" character of the city. There were no stores or traffic lights in Parkland until the mid-1990s and early 2000s when large neighborhood developments (Heron Bay and Parkland Isles) were built.

On February 14, 2018, a gunman killed 17 people and injured 17 others in the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, the deadliest shooting at an American high school. [7] As a result of this, the survivors of the shooting, notably David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, and Cameron Kasky organized a demonstration called March for Our Lives on March 24, 2018 in Washington, D.C. in support of legislation to prevent gun violence in the United States with turnout estimated to be between 1.2 and 2 million people in the U.S, making it one of the largest protests in American history.
