This is a privately maintained web site that does not have any official relationship to the Town of Loxahatchee Groves or the Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District (LGWCD).
Thanks for stopping by. The Town of Loxahatchee Groves is a small community encompassing 12.5 square miles (7,800 acres) and has an estimated population of over 3,000. It is located in Palm Beach County about 15 miles west of I-95 near Royal Palm Beach on the north side of Southern Blvd (US-441/SR-80). The Acreage is to the North and West while the Village of Wellington is to the South.
Loxahatchee Groves affectionately called "The Groves" had its origins in 1917 and was primarily oriented around producing citrus. Loxahatchee is a very large area that includes several communities as well as wildlife and other natural preserves. Loxahatchee Groves was recognized as a South Florida district by the State Legislature in 1917 and Groves was added to the name to differentiate it from other surrounding areas. Once the "Last Frontier", The Groves has been surrounded by urban development. We voted to incorporate in 2006 with the objective of having more control on our future.
The Groves Today
The Groves has a long rural history and many residents still cling to those ideals but a continuing influx of more sophisticated urban oriented residents is rapidly changing the town's character. A long time attitude of "Love-it-and-leave-it Alone" is allowing what some think is a vocal minority to dictate changes many do not want but are unwilling to step up and say so.
The community continues to be primarily a collection of various home based agricultural pursuits, equestrians, private homes, and a few public businesses. Shopping centers, grocery stores, gas stations, and other "essentials" are located nearby in Royal Palm Beach or Wellington. Plans are in place to build additional commercial businesses along our southern border and potentially a new town center along Okeechobee. Nearby medical facilities are some of the best.
