Bounded by the neighborhoods of North Lauderdale and Oakland Park to the north, North Fort Lauderdale to the east and Sunrise to the south, Tamarac was developed by Ken Behring to become a community where he could build his maintenance-free homes.
He named the city after the Oakland Park’s Tamarac Country Club. Behring first built the Tamarac Lakes Sections One and Two along the east of State Road 7.
To date, the city remains as a bedroom community that covers the areas of Northwest 31 to 37 and from Commercial Boulevard to the Northwest 16 Avenue.
Tamarac is strategically located to have great access to most offerings of Fort Lauderdale and the Broward County as it is bounded by Sawgrass Expressway to the west and pierced by the Florida’s Turnpike.
Tamarac evolved from being a retirement community to a city for all ages, forcing it to boost its array of activities and services to cater all ages.
Fire protection and EMS are provided for by Tamarac Fire Rescue, which has received an ISO Class 1 rating.
To effectively enforce the law and maintain safety in Tamarac, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office Tamarac District employs over 100 employees and a K-9 unit.
Tamarac is indeed an active community with a host of entertainment venues that residents can visit and explore.
For avid golfers, the city features several country clubs including the Woodmont Country Club, Woodlands Country Club and Colony West Golf Club.
Sunrise Point Park, Lighthouse Point Park Carousel and Tamarac Sports Complex are also frequented by the locals.
For some retail therapy, McNab Plaza, Tamarac Square West Shopping Center, Midway Plaza, University Plaza and Gardens Mall are just some of the shops that Tamarac has.
