Heron Bay is a large unique which straddles the cities of Coral Springs and Parkland in the northwest corner of Broward County. Strategically located just off the Sawgrass Expressway between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton, it is just 10 to 15 minutes from the white sand and blue ocean of Deerfield Beach. This is truly a peaceful setting in the busy South Florida area. Parkland offers a suburban lifestyle along with wooded acreage and miles of equestrian trails for the horse lover.

Heron Bay started as a bedroom community in the late 1990s, with median age in the high 30s and with high income households choosing the area for its spacious subdivision, excellent “A” rated public school system, and close location to all highways for commuters. It is a short distance from Stoneman Douglas High School and West Glades Middle School, and directly across the street is Heron Heights, a “green” Elementary School.
Heron bay has 3 separate 24 hour guard gated entrances for convenient access to major roads. Here you can enjoy all the benefits of true country club style amenities without the high fees of joining a club. Actually total maintenance fees are between $200 and $350 per month. The first Heron Bay Commons clubhouse and tennis center has 12 clay and 2 hard courts, giant swimming pool, spa and sauna, fitness center, indoor racquetball court, and a large club room for residents to book events.

Heron Bay real estate includes something for everyone. Starter condos and townhouses, newer construction homes, million dollar estates, and new construction homes built from 2013 and on.
The centerpiece of the community is the Heron Bay Golf Club. This was the former site of the TPC Honda Classic for 6 years and the course is open to the public. You can pay for daily play, or you can become a member for unlimited golf. Golfers will love the way the course winds throughout the homes in the community. The pro shop has all the apparel you need with onsite pros available for private or group lessons.
Outside of the community, you have plenty of access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment. Major shopping malls of Sawgrass Mills and Boca Town Center have brand names like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth, Macy’s, Dillards, and all the world famous designers, are just 10 to 15 minutes away.
Heron Bay has become the ultimate community for all ages, that is why I have chosen to relocate my family here too.
