Live, Shop and Play
Aventura, one of Miami-Dade's newest communities, was incorporated in 1995 and is a young, vibrant, full-service municipality with a diverse demographic base and is recognized internationally as a premier location in which to live, shop and play.
Aventura is 3.2 square miles located on the Intracoastal Waterway in northeast Miami-Dade County and is conveniently located between two major South Florida airports and two of the largest and most popular seaports in the world.
Aventura is an upscale condo community with some of South Florida's best-known large-scale condominium projects and apartment buildings. Restaurants, movie theaters and the Aventura Mall are convenient nearby and downtown Fort Lauderdale and Miami are just 20 minutes away.
Always Moving Forward
Since the City's incorporation millions of dollars have been spent on infrastructure improvements including streets, sidewalks, lighting, park development, beautification projects, drainage, pedestrian and safety improvements. Some of these improvements include:
- A state-of-the-art Government Center provides a one-stop-shop for its residents and houses all governmental operations, including Commission Chambers, Police Station and administrative offices.
- A Community/Recreation Center situated on 2.8 acres of land in a park like setting on the waterfront. This 25,000 square foot facility includes a gym, meeting rooms, computer lab, exercise and aerobic facilities.
- The first municipal-run charter school in Miami-Dade County. In order to address the growing number of families with school age children, the City Commission chose to take an aggressive approach to meet its changing demographics. Doors opened to the Aventura City of Excellence School in the fall of 2003 which is adjacent to the new Community Recreation Center. The 45,000 square foot state-of-the-art school serves 900 Aventura schoolchildren from kindergarten to 8th grade.
