Coconut Creek is located in the state of Florida and a city in Broward County. The city forms part of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area. In the 1960s, the area was separated from Pompano Beach. It was nicknamed as the Butterfly Capital of the World because of its large butterfly aviary and was considered to be the biggest in the world. The city’s residential homes were mostly composed of single-family homes, townhouses, and condominiums that are within the professionally landscaped neighborhoods. The name of the city was taken after the coconut trees that were planted by the early developers that were led by Robert E. Bateman, who then named it Coconut Creek. It is considered to be a well-planned community and has a unique environmental consciousness with its abundant waterways, trees, beautiful parks, and other recreational activities.
