Preserving our rural lifestyle

About our Town

“It’s a great day in Southwest Ranches!" We are located on the eastern edge of the Florida Everglades, 15 miles (24km) southwest of Fort Lauderdale. We are Broward County’s 30th incorporated municipality, having incorporated in the year 2000 to preserve our rural lifestyle.

The area has many horse ranches and is located in the southwestern part of Broward County, residents chose “Southwest Ranches” over many other potential Town names. The population as of the 2020 census was 7,923.

Because of our beautiful natural amenities, unique characteristics, and the quality of life enjoyed by our residents we are one of the most attractive places to live in all of South Florida.
