are Fort Lauderdale communities that abound with waterfront property and lush tropical vegetation. Think of iconic island scenery nestled in the palms, but conveniently located within minutes to Fort Lauderdale airport, Port Everglades, Las Olas Boulevard, downtown Fort Lauderdale, Riverwalk, the 17th Street Causeway, and the beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach.
As with the other neighborhoods featured on my website, location is key. I95, 595, and the Turnpike are all within a quick commute if you are a road warrior. Have the best of both worlds at your whim – seclusion and quiet peace when you want it, and the booming pace and ease of commerce when you need it.
Riverside Park is defined by the following boundaries: between Broward and Davie Boulevards, east of I95, and west of the north and south fork of the New River. The neighborhood is accessed from SW 15th Avenue on Davie Boulevard, and SW 18th Avenue and Palm Avenue on Broward Boulevard.
Tarpon River is defined by the following boundaries: New River on the north and west, Davie Boulevard to the south, and Andrews Boulevard to the east. This neighborhood is accessed from SW 4th Avenue on Davie and Broward Boulevards, and SW 5th, 7th, or 9th from Andrews.
Some of the touted features of these greens are immaculately maintained playgrounds for the kids, picnic tables canopied by shady trees or pavilions for the family, tennis courts, a lawn bowling field, mulched paths, and activity fields for sports galore. And of course it wouldn’t be Fort Lauderdale without the spectacular views.
Incorporate them into your daily afternoon stroll through this tropical Fort Lauderdale treasure – the views from the bridges are truly a therapeutic way to wind down into your evenings.
Riverside Market is also a mentionable favorite of mine for the occasional happy hour, with its laid back t-shirt and sandals atmosphere and generous selection of craft beers and hearty homestyle cuisine. I frequent this local hangout and I can vouch for its stress relieving effects.
The Riverside Park residential community has its beginnings in the 1950s. In the early 1920s the swing bridge was built, and even earlier than that this area was a produce trading point along the New River.
Amazingly enough, there are some prime lots on the river and other spots currently available for development – land like this is and extremely rare commodity when you are considering this Fort Lauderdale location. Lot sizes in both Tarpon River and Riverside Park are generous for this part of South Florida.
Of the neighborhoods on my website, these are the two with the most opportunity for building new or redeveloping an existing home. There is plenty of room on most yards for you to create and enjoy some wonderful outdoor living spaces with your family.
Architecture in these neighborhoods abounds with both variety and uniqueness. From bungalows to colonial style mansions, Spanish and Mediterranean beauties that impress to the subtle and inconspicuous eco friendly designs are the types of homes you will come to know as you stroll through the tree lined streets.
I am happy to present you with another wonderful Fort Lauderdale option for your future.
