Southwest Ranches

Southwest Ranches, FL Real Estate

SunriseSouthwest Ranches, located on the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades, 15 miles (24km) southwest of Fort Lauderdale, is Broward County’s 30th incorporated municipality, having incorporated in the year 2000 to preserve its semi-rural lifestyle.

Because the area has many horse ranches and is located in the southwestern part of Broward County, residents chose “Southwest Ranches” over many other potential Town names. The population as of the 2010 census was 7,345.

The zoning in the Town is almost entirely rural residential and agricultural. We also have a growing amount of zoning for recreation and open space, which preserves land for residents’ enjoyment. The newest zoning district is for community facilities that serve the community.
