Palm Beach Gardens Real Estate

Palm Beach Gardens in Palm Beach County, Florida, is a city of over 48,000 people located just to the north of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach. Juno Beach and Jupiter Beach lie to the city's North and the vast green space of the 60,348-acre Jim Corbett Wildlife Management Area lies to the west. What was 55 square miles of grazing dairy cattle and pine forests until well into the middle of the 20th century is now a rapidly-growing modern city with over 30% of its land dedicated to green space, recreation programs tailored for residents of all ages and a healthy business climate that encourages innovation.

In 1959, wealthy landowner John D. MacArthur named the area Palm Beach Gardens after his vision of a garden city, and began ambitious plans for a city of 55,000 people. The city grew slowly but steadily in the subsequent decades. The completion of the 1,300,000-square-foot Gardens Mall in 1988 brought a large influx of new residents as did the many new residential communities including many exclusive gated communities and the condominiums and office parks that grew around it. The sale of 5,000 acres of land by the MacArthur Foundation in 1999 led to a new wave of rapid development, and the city continues to grow.

The garden city that MacArthur imagined offers a tropical climate and the vibrant Florida lifestyle that goes with it. A golfer's heaven, Palm Beach Gardens is home to the headquarters of the Professional Golfers' Association of America (PGA), and boasts some of the best residential golf clubs in Florida, including the Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer-designed PGA National, Ibis Golf and Country Club and Mirasol. There are 12 golf courses within the city limits. PGA National was the site of the 1983 Ryder Cup, the 1987 PGA Championship, and the Senior PGA Championship from 1982-2000. The Honda Classic has been held at two Palm Beach Gardens locations.

Along PGA Boulevard, The Gardens Mall, PGA Commons, Midtown, Legacy Place, and Downtown at the Gardens have formed a luxury retail, dining and nightlife destination for all of Palm Beach County, offering shops like Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and many more. The Edward M. Eissey Campus, a satellite campus of the Palm Beach State College and home to the Eissey Theatre for the Performing Arts, is in Palm Beach Gardens. The city has an Art in Public Places ordinance which it adopted in 1989, leading to an impressive collection of works. West Palm Beach and Palm Beach are just minutes away by car, providing easy access to internationally renowned arts centers like the Kravis Center and Norton Gallery, popular restaurants, the nightlife and culture of Clematis Street and Worth Avenue shopping.

Three interchanges on I-95 serve the city, as do two interchanges on the Florida Turnpike. Public transit is available to the rest of Palm Beach County through the regional commuter bus system PalmTran. The nearest major airports are Palm Beach International airport in West Palm Beach (12 miles) and Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International airport (58 miles).
