Parkland is a beautiful neighborhood in Sunnyvale that offers suburban comforts with rural charm. Tree-canopied streets and the two excellent parks that anchor the neighborhood give Parkland the serene feeling that residents cherish. Built between the 1950s and 1970s, most of the homes surrounding Ponderosa Park, the northern part of Parkland, are traditional one and two-story homes, while the southern part of Parkland near Raynor Park is occupied by modern, single-story houses on spacious lots. The smaller homes on larger lots further invoke the bucolic feel.

Ponderosa Park is over 9 acres and acts as the heart of the neighborhood. Amenities are plentiful with picnic areas and facilities suited for baseball, basketball, tennis, bocce ball and more. Families are sure to also enjoy the 14.7 acres of Raynor Park, located near the Apple “spaceship” campus, equipped with play areas, two baseball fields, and horseshoe pits. Resident golfers are in heaven with The Sunken Gardens Golf Course and Golfland USA around the corner. Sunken Gardens is a fun place for beginners and avid players alike with a 9-hole course and 18 stall driving range. Golfland is perfect for family fun with mini golf and arcade games.

Though Parkland benefits from well-respected public schools, the neighborhood is home to an abundance of private schools as well, such as South Peninsula Hebrew Day School, The French American School of Silicon Valley, and Challenger School. Between wonderful school options, places for recreation, and suburban convenience, Parkland is an ideal neighborhood.

Parkland residents are in the Santa Clara Unified School District (Braly Elementary, Laurelwood Elementary, Ponderosa Elementary, and Marian A. Peterson Middle) and the Sunnyvale School District (Sunnyvale Middle and Columbia Middle), with attendance to Fremont High and Adrian Wilcox High.
