LIVING IN THE ACREAGE
Families who choose to live in the Acreage, also called The Acreage of Royal Palm Beach, are happy with a 1.2 acre or larger lot size, a lot of privacy, a country lifestyle and an opportunity to own animals, especially horses. The Acreage is located north of Okeechobee Blvd. and north of Royal Palm Beach and Loxahatchee.
In June 2001 there were about 37,000 people calling The Acreage their home, and most of them seem quite happy to be there. Medium family income is about $51,000 and most of the residents are young married couples with young children.
Most of the schools are new or almost new. Residents shop mostly in Wellington, or Royal Palm Beach
ROYAL PALM BEACH
The Village of Royal Palm Beach, in Palm Beach County, Florida, is one of the nicest cities in South Florida. It was incorporated as a municipality in 1959 and became mostly a retired citizens' community. But that changed in the 1980s and 1990 as young families began to move in. It is now a very young, family community with lots of amenities for children as well as older residents.
With a year-round population of around 25,000 (which grows somewhat during the winter season), Royal Palm Beach is a busy, fast-growing community with a solid and experienced manager-elected council style government. The village comprises 11.65 square miles and is approximately 6 miles west of the City of West Palm Beach.
Median family income is about $46,000
The village is home to several golf clubs and residents also play golf, tennis and other sports in neighboring communities such as Wellington. The village's schools are modern and well rated with most of the children continuing through college.
The village has set a high standard of 7.5 acres of park land per 1,000 residents. The parks are planned, functional, and designed with open space areas which are maintained at a high standard that serves the present and future needs of the residents.
The South Florida Fairgrounds and Mars Music Amphitheater are at the village's eastern boundary, just east of State Road 7.
The village is 5 miles north of the Mall at Wellington Green, which opened in October 2001 as one of the largest fully enclosed malls in Florida. With at least five major department store anchors, hundreds of shops, restaurants, office buildings and a hotel, Wellington Green has already begun to increase property values in the village as well as its neighbor.
