Living in Palm Beach Gardens

The history of Palm Beach Gardens is short but impressive. A mere 60 years old, it has grown to include some of the nation's most beautiful golf courses and some of the country's most prestigious designer stores. Designed as a “garden city", a third of the town's land is green space and there are many parks and outdoor recreational activities to enjoy throughout the neighborhood.

With a wealth of restaurants, bars and shops along with an award-winning public arts program, Palm Beach Gardens is the perfect place to enjoy the best that Florida has to offer.

Palm Beach Gardens History

Initially home to cattle ranches, pine forests, and swampland, Palm Beach Gardens came into being when wealthy landowner and insurance magnate, John D MacArthur, announced plans to develop 4000 acres of land in 1959. In the 1960 census one person was recorded as living in the town but during the 70's and 80's the population grew steadily. The building of The Gardens Mall in 1988 initiated a new wave of development and today the city has a population of over 48,000.

Palm Beach Gardens is home to the American Professional Golfers Association, which is hardly surprising when you consider there are no less than 12 golf courses within the city limits.

Finally, there are a wide variety of parks situated throughout the city.

There are also grills and picnic tables if you want to enjoy a meal in the open air.
