Neighborhood Spotlight: Coral Ridge

10 Jul 2013 · TrustLarry News Team

We love Coral Ridge. Here’s why…

Coral Ridge Canal

One of Fort Lauderdale’s friendliest neighborhoods, Coral Ridge was formally incorporated in 1947 during the boom of the 1940s and 50s following WWII. A skip across the Intracoastal Waterway to Fort Lauderdale Beach, it’s a lovely neighborhood (with stupendous trick-or-treating) and boasts an A-Rated 5-Star school, Bayview Elementary. Many families only consider moving to this area or refuse to leave it because of this school. The neighborhood stretches down the east side of the city from Oakland Park Boulevard to Sunrise Boulevard. Sometimes the area is referred to as ‘Old Coral Ridge,’ reminiscent of the fact that Coral Ridge Country Club was founded to the north later in the 60’s.

Both Coral Ridge and Coral Ridge Country Club are bisected by Bayview Drive, which stretches from Sunrise Blvd north to 62nd Street. The west side of the neighborhood is bordered by the Middle River, and the east side has finger canals leading to the Intracoastal Waterway, with no fixed bridges to ocean access. Canals in this neighborhood are slightly wider than those in Coral Ridge Country Club, usually allowing for 100 feet of water frontage.

The neighborhood is home to Coral Ridge Yacht Club and for those looking to relax on 18 holes, Coral Ridge Country Club is just a chip away. George English Park provides small boat launching sites for the area as well as basketball and tennis courts. Undoubtedly one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale, Coral Ridge is truly a charming place to call home.
