A four-square-mile city located at the junction of Oakland Park Boulevard and State Road 7, Lauderdale Lakes’ motto, “The Heart of Broward County,” reflects both its attitude, and its geography. Incorporated in 1961, the city grew from a rural beginning into a modern community with a diverse population of 32,000 residents. Lauderdale Lakes is focused on business development and economic growth, and its proximity to Fort Lauderdale, Tamarac, Oakland Park, and Lauderhill make it a convenient choice for commuters.

While Lauderdale Lakes aims to attract commerce, it still offers its citizens an attractive smaller-city lifestyle.
