A Great Place to Be
Greenacres certainly has plenty of green – from earning the title Tree City USA to vast nearby parks.
It definitely says something when the National Arbor Day Foundation has bestowed on you for nearly 20 consecutive years an official designation as a Tree City USA. Local civic pride doesn’t stop there. The has been recognized four times by America’s Promise as one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People, most recently in 2011.
Greenacres is located in the central Palm Beaches, with the major cities of Wellington and Lake Worth close by. While Florida’s Turnpike runs only a few miles away from the city’s western edge. Right on the western city limit sits one of the most superb parks in The Palm Beaches – Okeeheelee. More than 1,700 acres feature a nature center, biking paths, hiking, fishing, water skiing, and even a BMX track. But it’s the golf course and equestrian, which make Okeeheelee really stand out. The course is set up in three nine-hole courses and can be played in multiple 18-hole combinations. While the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center and 9 miles of horse trails create an ideal showplace.
