Cooper City

Located 15 miles southwest of Fort Lauderdale ― approximately 25 minutes away by car ― Cooper City is a desirable Broward County city that proudly fancies itself as “Someplace Special.”

Indeed, with welcoming, family-friendly neighborhoods and a lifestyle that offers plenty of promise and opportunity, there is little wonder why Cooper City is a popular South Florida suburb among home buyers with families. In fact, the city earned acclaim from Family Circle magazine in 2007 when it was listed among its Best 10 Towns for Families.

Cooper City was borne out of the vision of businessman Morris Cooper, who transformed what used to be an orange grove and sprawling cattle grazing fields into the inviting South Florida community that it is today.

Cooper City was incorporated in 1959, with an initial population of 85. The city’s population has since ballooned to 35,000.
