About The Community
Palm Beach Gardens encompasses 56 square miles with over 30% of land mass dedicated to green space. The city was built with a vision of hundreds of waterways, rolling terrain, magnificent pine and shade trees, and rich foliage. The winding city streets without sidewalks are named after flowers and trees and lined with lush native and transplanted trees and flowers. Two magnificent Banyan trees that were transplanted at great cost and effort welcome you at the entrance to the City. The first buildings to be built in the city were churches of all denominations.
