About Oakland Park, Florida
Oakland Park, Florida is located near Fort Lauderdale, and is known for having a small town feeling. In fact, this city of nearly 43,000 people adopted the phrase “Small town in the big city” as its vision statement. Oakland Park was named after the tall oaks that can be found here, and was incorporated after its predecessor, the city of Floranada (a combination of Florida and Canada), went bankrupt after the 1926 hurricane. Children of some of its pioneers still live here.
Stimulating urban renewal is a current priority for the city. Residents here want to maintain a vibrant business climate and a strong economic well-being to continue to enhance the high quality of life that Oakland Park is known for.
