City of Palm Beach Gardens encompasses 56 square miles with over 30% of land mass dedicated to green space. The city was built with a vision of hundreds of waterways, rolling terrain, magnificent mature pine and shade trees, and rich foliage. The winding city streets without sidewalks are named after flowers and trees and lined with lush native and transplanted trees and flowers.
