Shady Banks is a residential neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. With approximately 500 single family homes and many old growth oaks lining its quiet streets, it is located on the banks of the New River and home to Hortt Park and the Bill Keith Nature Preserve.
Waterfront homes in Shady Banks are located along the south fork of the scenic New River with no fixed bridges to the ocean. The neighborhood is conveniently close to the Fort Lauderdale Airport, downtown Fort Lauderdale and our famous Fort Lauderdale beach. The Shady Banks community is made up of a mixture of young families and retirees. It is one of Fort Lauderdale’s best kept secrets due to its close proximity to I-95, making it ideal for those who want to live near the beach and downtown but commute to work via I-95, I-595 or the Turnpike.
