Colee Hammock and Victoria Park blend together in many places. Colee Hammock starts east of Victoria Park Road and south of Broward Blvd in an area of old "boomer" homes, some lovely charmers and some very beautiful new homes. It also extends south of Las OLas Blvd. all the way to the New River and back west to the Henry Kinney tunnel. Here you will find very desirable older homes with huge old oak trees that shade the area from the hot sun. Along the New River there is a Colee Hammock Park where you can see people sitting having lunch or just watching the passing parade of yachts. There is also the Happyland Preschool, two large churches and some commercial enterprises on Las Olas Blvd. including the Intercoastal Realty building.
Victoria Park occupies a large area north of the New River similar in size and ambience to Rio Vista but with less waterfront. To drive along Victoria Park Road in the spring under a canopy of flaming Poinciana trees is such a treat! In the entire area there are small charmers with interesting features, some new construction and a few apartment buildings. There is also Holiday Park which brings joggers and many sports and an outstanding public tennis facility where Chris Evert learned to play tennis. It is also home to Virginia Young Montessori magnet school, St. Anthony Church and School, St. Demetrious Greek Catholic Church well known for its food festival, Parker Playhouse with some good theater productions, and the War Memorial, home to all kinds of exhibitions. All in all, a very good place to live close to everything you could need for super living!
