Riverside Park is at the convergent point of the South and North Fork of the New River so this has to be a special place with the most riverfront of all the Ft. Lauderdale neighborhoods! This is a funky, fun neighborhood that is just plain enjoyable to live in. It feels very lush with old oaks along the narrow streets and many home with oversized, landscaped lots. Single family homes are mixed with apartments and newer condominiums, as well as a few commercial buildings close to the park including Bozos Sandwich Shop.

Several smaller neighborhoods, all with their own character make up Riverside Park. Just over the Swing Bridge from Sailboat Bend, there is a small park with a new community center, tennis and basketball courts, and the area around the park is lush with waterfront homes on three sides. Gill Isles, a nice little canal community, is to the north and is a great place to buy a reasonably priced deepwater home with no fixed bridges between you and the ocean. The brand new Coontie Hatchee Park is along the river on the south side of the neighborhood where you can enjoy a picnic on the river underneath the old pines. Easy access is the name of the game here. You can walk to downtown and the Riverwalk, you’re 2 minutes from the highway, the beach is 20 minutes away, and the International Airport is 10. I tell people to call when they are leaving the plane and I’ll be there to pick them up right on time.

From Riverside Park, you have to go under all of the downtown bridges to get to sea, as well as the Swing Bridge west of 11th Ave. on the North Fork, but they all open on demand. It takes about 35 minutes to get out to sea from here. The SW 4th Ave bridge has a 20’ clearance, the railroad bridge is left up unless there is a train passing through, the S. Andrews Ave. bridge has a 21’ clearance, and the SE 3rd Ave. bridge is 16’. After this, you will still have to pass under the 17th St. Causeway with its 55’ clearance when it’s closed. It will open upon request anytime at 15 min. intervals if necessary. Waterfront comes in two varieties here, riverfront and canal. The river varies widely from 100’ to over 300’ wide. You can take up 1/3 of the width including your dock and boat. Lots have anywhere from 50-200’ of waterfront. You need 5’ of space on either side so if you have 100’ of waterfront, your dockage is only 90’. Depth varies so if you have a sailboat with a deep draft, check the nautical charts for accurate information. If you’re on the canals of Gill Isles, they are all around 60’ wide and lots are mostly 65’ of waterfront. Be aware that property at the interior end of the canal sometimes only have around 30’ of waterfront and they can get a bit stagnant.
