Shady Banks is exactly like the name sounds, large, old oak trees shade the narrow streets along the banks of the South Fork of the New River. This is a great neighborhood just south and on the other side of Davie Blvd. from Riverside Park. It’s a bit secluded from the areas around it with the river making up its east and south boundaries, I-95 on the west, and Davie Blvd. on the north. Large estates dot the riverfront, a new townhouse project is planned for the southern edge, and many smaller homes can be found along several canals within the neighborhood.

This is a great neighborhood with many long time residents, all single family homes, many big, oversized lots, an elementary school, and a park right in the middle. There is even a newly designated nature preserve right on the river where you can fish from the sandy banks! Another nice element is a group of modernist homes by architect Donald Singer in one section of the neighborhood, giving it a nice eclectic feeling. Your two minutes from the highway, the beach is 20 minutes away and 10 minutes gets you downtown or to the International Airport.

You have to go under the Davie Blvd. bridge, with its 21’ clearance as well as all of the downtown bridges to get to sea, but they all open on demand. 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. It takes about 35 minutes to get out to sea from here. Waterfront comes in two varieties here, riverfront and canal. The river varies 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 one of the canals they are all around 60’ wide and lots are mostly 60’ 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.
