About South West Ranches

The Town of Southwest Ranches is thirteen square miles of rural environment, filled with grazing animals, nurseries, farmlands, an abundance of wildlife, and picturesque scenery.  Located southwest of Broward County, fifteen miles from Fort-Lauderdale, and bordering the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades, Southwest Ranches is an ideal community for the everyday nature and agrarian lover.

With an omnipresence of a rural atmosphere, the Town was originally formed in order to stop the encroaching of development, and abides by its unofficial mottos “The Pavement Stops Here” and “Preserve Our Rural Lifestyle.” With an endearing and charming residential layout, Southwest Ranches has laws that prevent homes from being built on lots less than one acre. The size of the residential lots enable expansive yards and increased privacy that are sought after and unsurpassed by other South Florida areas. The zoning aspect of Southwest Ranches is primarily residential and agricultural, but with a recent influx of populace, the Town has expanded its zoning to encompass an array of recreational and open spaces.

With a countryside aura, Southwest Ranches has many miles of developed greenways and multi-use trails which are in spirit with the equestrian lifestyle. The Town also offers many outdoor hiking, sightseeing and exploring opportunities with attractions such as Trailside Park, Sunshine Ranches Equestrian Park, Southwest Meadows Sanctuary, Rolling Oaks Passive Park, Country Estates Fishing Hole and Frontier Trails nearby. Southwest Ranches is an equestrian oasis among the modern concrete jungles of Broward County, which offers an escape to a time when rural simplicity and agricultural splendor was timeless.
