Wellington is a village in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States. As of 2006, the village had a population of 55,584 according to the U.S. Census Bureau,[4] making it the most populous village in the state. Wellington is part of the South Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Wellington was originally the world’s largest strawberry patch, the Flying Cow Ranch. C. Oliver Wellington bought 18,000 acres (73 km2) of swampland in the 1950s in central Palm Beach County that eventually would be called the Village of Wellington. Wellington began as a planned unit development approved by Palm Beach County in 1972. For many years it functioned as a bedroom community with few shopping centers or restaurants until it was incorporated in December 1995. Wellington has become an international center for equestrian sports. Far from its roots as a swampy backwater as compared to its glamorous neighbor Palm Beach twenty minutes to the east, Wellington today quietly draws a wealthy cross-section of international society, celebrity, and business personalities who consider it a required destination for their equestrian pursuits.
