West Park

Broward County's newest municipality, created March 1, 2005, is located in southeast Broward County and consists of the neighborhoods of Miami Gardens, Carver Ranches, Lake Forest and Utopia. With more than 15,200 residents, the new city borders Miami-Dade County on the south, Pembroke Park on the east, Hollywood on the north and Miramar on the west.

The previously unincorporated neighborhoods of West Park embarked on the road to incorporation in 2004, after the Florida Legislature approved House Bill 1491, which provided for an election on November 2, 2004. Following a vote of 3,400 to 956 for incorporation, West Park was on its way to becoming Broward County's 31st city. After the election, residents elected an interim transition committee and held a series of workshops to gain input on the level of municipal-type services to be provided. It was decided that the new municipality would be known as West Park until consensus is reached on a permanent name.

Residents in the multi-cultural municipality can enjoy three nearby County parks: Mary Saunders Park (4.43 acres), located within municipal boundaries, McTyre Park (19.03 acres) and Lake Forest Community Center (5.22 acres) both located in Pembroke Park. In addition, residents have easy access to State parks in the adjacent cities of Hollywood and Miramar. While most of West Park is composed of residential neighborhoods, the city has a number of business, commercial, and industrial parcels.
