Learn More About Tamarac, Florida
Tamarac is a medium-sized city of about 65,000 people situated in Broward County, Florida. The community, which boasts a diverse population, covers an area of about 12 square miles, with around 4 percent of this made of water. It is included in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Metropolitan Area.
Originally conceived as a bedroom community, Tamarac was developed in the 1960s. Ken Behring, a young developer from the Midwest, arrived during that period to buy land in the area. He had the intention of developing an adult community consisting of two-bedroom, maintenance-free homes. The first development was done east of State Road 7 in 1963, the year Tamarac was incorporated. The other neighborhoods in the city were gradually developed in subsequent years. Behring named the community after the Tamarac Country Club in neighboring Oakland Park.
Tamarac experienced tremendous growth in the 10-year period leading to 1980, with population rising from 5,193 to 29,376. The number of residents was estimated at 64,681 in 2015. The city boasts an ethnically-diverse population. The number of people living here who are of Latin American or Caribbean origin has risen over the years. After English, Spanish was the next-most popular first language there as of 2000 census. The level of education in Tamarac is just about better than that of a typical U.S. city. The percentage of adult residents with at least a Bachelor's degree is calculated around the national average. But the number of those with a high school diploma is greater than the national average.
The more popular of the communities in the city include Woodlands, Woodmont Tract and Mainlands of Tamarac Lakes. The Woodlands in Tamarac, one of the more recent neighborhoods here, is a world-class country club community featuring about 900 single-family housing units. Its development was done after that of the Mainlands of Tamarac Lakes, which lies west of State Road 7. The Woodmont Tract Community will attract those people who love nature with its lush landscape, amazing local wildlife, including the great horned owl, and superb amenities, such as an over 2,150-foot long boardwalk and an over 1,600-foot long pedestrian trail.
From the above, it is easy to tell that Tamarac promises exhilarating outdoor fun for the family. The city has several parks, some of which have walking paths. The parks with walking paths include the Caporella Park, Sunset Point Park, Mainlands Park and Tephford Park. Shelters are available for picnics at the parks. The Caporella Aquatic Center offers residents numerous great amenities, include a big swimming pool, children's water playground, large pavilion, expansive fitness room, locker rooms (male and female) and picnic tables among others, for amazing time away from home.
Tamarac also has baseball fields and offers opportunities for enjoying golf action in its vicinity. It also provides a wide range of recreation programs for residents of all ages. There are sports leagues for youths and adults. Aquatic classes (swimming lessons), fitness classes, and senior programs and trips are part of the city's recreational programs.
Tamarac is a decent city for people who appreciate nature and have great predilection for outdoor activities. Virtually everybody can feel at home in this community when one considers the diversity of its residents.
