15 Aug Neighborhood Spotlight – Rio Vista
One of the oldest communities in Fort Lauderdale, Rio Vista is located along the New River and boasts several luxurious waterfront homes on its isles. Situated just south of downtown and the vibrant Las Olas Blvd., this community of about 2000 residents features a wide array of home styles and is in close proximity to plenty of shopping and entertainment options. Having been developed in the 1920’s, Rio Vista takes great pride in its canopy coverage with mature trees that line streets and provide needed shade. Boaters will also be delighted with easy ocean access and deep-water docking.
In addition to its privileged location, Rio Vista has a very active civic association that strives to enrich the quality of life in the neighborhood through community projects and representation of its residents to other organizations. Voluntarily sponsored by some of its residents through said association, Protect Rio Vista is a program designed to build on the city’s existing police services by funding additional patrol hours by off-duty officers.
