Aventura is conveniently located between Miami and Fort Lauderdale and is about one mile west of the Atlantic Ocean. It is part of Miami Dade County. It is home to a population of about thirty seven thousand people of diverse cultures and with a very strong sense of community.
About The Community
Most of what is now the city of Aventura was planned during the 1970s by Turnberry International Realty as a high-rise residential area. Some of Miami’s tallest condominium towers are located there. Aventura covers an area of about 3.52 square miles and the city was incorporated in 1995. In recent years, the City of Aventura has adopted several initiatives aimed at reinforcing a strong sense of community. With the building of its first Charter School in 2003, the new Community Recreation Center, Veterans Park and Waterways Park, the City continues to grow and progress.
