The idyllic community took its city name from coconut trees, which were planted by the property developers. Robert Bateman said that he took the inspiration from the Coconut Grove neighborhood and Indian Creek Village.
The master-planned city has a unique character, taking into consideration the environment and its impact to the community. Around the city, one can see an abundance of trees, landscaped roadways, lush greenery, and butterfly gardens.
With this, Coconut Creek was recognized by the Florida state as the first Community Wildlife Habitat. The city was even named by Money magazine as the 48th best small town to live in the U.S. In 2012, the city was named Playful City USA for its focused advocacy on giving children more avenues and opportunities for play.
Coconut Creek is a beautiful neighborhood home to many landscaped parks, golf courses, restaurants and shops.
Some of the places worth visiting in the community include the Sabal Pines Park, Helene Klein Pineland Reserve, Long Pine Greenway, Fernforest Nature Center and Tradewinds Park. Tradewinds Park is home to the Butterfly Garden.
Adios and Wynmoor Golf courses are also within the city limits. Seminole Casino is also a favorite hangout among locals.
The city is also home to Coconut Creek Community Center and Recreation Complex. The Promenade at Coconut Creek is a 23-acre open-air shopping and restaurant complex located within the neighborhood.
