did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT OAKLAND PARK?

  1. Oakland Park, officially the City of Oakland Park, is a city in Broward County, Florida. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city's population was 41,363, mainly due to annexation of North Andrews Gardens and Twin Lakes South. It is part of the Miami–Fort Lauderdale–Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area, which was home to 5,564,635 people at the 2010 census.

  2. Originally named Floranada (a blend of Florida and Canada), the town was forced into bankruptcy after the hurricane of 1926. When the town reincorporated, residents chose the name Oakland Park.

  3. Oakland Park borders the city of Wilton Manors, which is experiencing a tremendous amount of new development. Increased property prices in Wilton Manors have pushed up prices in Oakland Park and spurred interest in the city's downtown redevelopment plan.
