Aventura is a planned, suburban city located in northeastern Miami-Dade County, Florida. The city name is from the Spanish word for “adventure”, and was named “Aventura” after one of the developers of the original group of condominiums in the area said to the others developers, “What an adventure this is going to be.” Aventura has the perfect mix of housing that creates beautiful landscape of homes to fit every lifestyle.
In the center of the heart of Aventura is The Turnberry Golf Course encapsulated by Aventura’s Country Club Drive Circle, a multimillion dollar horticultural three-mile walking/jogging paved promenade which overlooks lakes, opulent residential high-rises, yachts and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Aventura Mall, the fifth largest shopping mall in the US, is also located here, a 2,400,000 sq ft (222,967 m2) indoor shopping center. The outdoor malls are “Loehmann’s Fashion Island”, “Aventura Shopping Center”, “Aventura Commons”, “The Promenade Shops”, and “The Shoppes at the Waterways”.
The city also has its own exclusive parks and recreation department which operate Founders Park, Founders Park Bayside, Waterways Park, Waterways Dog Park, Veterans Park, The Community Recreation Center, and the new Liberal Arts theater.
