Picture settling down in the best of both worlds of lush backgrounds with fragrant gardens and a new modern community. Palm Beach Gardens, although a quaint golf neighborhood with ultra-chic storefronts, is enveloped with radiant blooms and undulating trees. Initially developed in 1959 by John D. MacArthur, a multimillionaire insurance magnate and landowner, this plush area was first designed with a garden city plan in mind. Carved out of uninhabited, dairy cattle grazing land, Palm Beach Gardens soon developed into the contemporary blueprint of the American Dream, where residents could raise a family and earn a living.
Today, in keeping with MacArthur’s vision, Palm Beach Gardens is lined with rolling terrain, exotic flora, pastel posies and palm-shaded trees. The neighborhood’s original Banyan trees are still standing as MacArthur insisted that the city streets be constructed around the rich foliage that was already planted, noting that he could buy everything but age. Two gentle and stunning Banyan trees sit at the entrance of the city. Palm Beach Gardens has been named a Tree City USA for more than 30 years.
