Dania Beach Real Estate & Information

Founded in 1959 by self-made businessman / philanthropist Morris Cooper, Cooper City, Florida stands apart from neighboring cities in a number of positive ways. For starters, with a population just over 30,000 people, Cooper City remains much smaller than many cities in Broward County. This comfortable, small-town feel is accentuated by the prevalence of small and independent businesses and a lower crime rate than neighboring cities.

Shopping and Dining

Be prepared to find local stores and restaurants during a day of shopping and dining here. Cooper City Health Foods, for instance, focuses on nutrition, vitamins and specialty ingredients. Instead of getting lost in a mega-supermarket, find just what you’re looking for quickly and easily. Alex Fernandez’s Strike Zone is another Cooper City original with a wide selection of sporting goods and various logo / team apparel. Being smaller hasn’t limited the range of cuisine offered by Cooper City restaurants. Diners will be happy to find a few national chains such as Papa Johns, Quizno’s and Dairy Queen. There’s also plenty of variety for people who want to sample local flavors such as Akuna Sushi-Thai and Classics Deli.

Parks and Recreation

Despite its smaller size, Cooper City boasts 25 local parks. Bill Lips Sports Complex, for instance, covers 10 acres and offers fields for baseball, softball, soccer and football. The county facility Brian Piccolo Park was named for the Broward County native who went on to play football for Wake Forest before losing his battle to cancer at the age of 26. The park bearing his name covers a whopping 180 acres and provides facilities for softball, football, basketball, tennis and racquetball, just to name a few. Cooper City Park and Recreation sponsors a number of activities year round such as community garage sales and book swaps, a Founder’s Day parade in honor of Morris Cooper, family bike rides, Mother/Daughter Tea and Poolside Friday Fun Nights.


No matter your price range, you can find matching home listings in Cooper City. The average 243 sunny days per year help to attract active individuals and families. This lifestyle is augmented by facilities such as the David Posnack Jewish Community Center. Welcoming residents of all faiths, this JCC features programs in arts and craft, cooking, sports, gymnastics, dance and much more. Add to the comparatively low crime rate, a median age of 36 for residents and a mere 4% unemployment rate, and it’s not just the sunny climate making Cooper City shine brighter than most U.S. cities.

Schools, Health, Transportation

Served by four public schools, Cooper City takes education very seriously. Cooper City High School was recognized by the Florida Department of Education as a Five Star School for the 08/09 school year. Healthcare for the whole family is less than 3.5 miles away at Memorial Hospital Pembroke in the neighboring city of Hollywood. You can catch a Broward County Transit (BCT) bus there, and, within Cooper City, the BCT busses stop at 22 different destinations including the Davie/Cooper City Library, the Cooper City Pool and Tennis Center and the Wal-Mart on Flamingo Road. Residents truly get the best of both worlds, enjoying conveniences more commonly found in larger cities while receiving all the benefits of small-town living. Consider relocating to Cooper City, and you will too.
