My understanding was that the area bounded on the north by Sunrise Blvd., to the south by Broward Blvd., east at State Road 7 (441) and west by the Florida Turnpike in the City of Plantation is made up of 3 separate communities:

  • Breezeswept Park Estates  – East of Florida’s Turnpike, West of N.W. 46th Ave., North of Broward Blvd., and South of Sunrise Boulevard.
    • Homeowners Association: No
  • Mirror Lake Estates – Encompasses much of the area south of Sunrise Blvd., north of NW 10th Ct., east of NW 75th Terrace, and west of NW 70th.
    • Homeowners Association: No
  • Park East Plantation – North of Broward Blvd., South of Sunrise Blvd., East of NW 46th Ave., & West of 441/State Road 7
    • Homeowners Association: Voluntary

Although the entrances at 46th and Broward, 47th and Sunrise and 5th Street entrance say Park East.

Since moving into the Plantation Park East community in 2002, when you drive into one of the four entrances to the community there are pillars with “Park East” on them and I in turn, assumed I was in the Plantation Park East Community.

After researching the Water Main Project, every map I look at and the identifying documents do not name the area “Park East”, to the contrary, the community is labeled as “Breezewept Park Estates”. If you look at the GIS Crime Statistics, “Breezewept Park Estates” shows up and nothing about “Park East.” (!!??!!)

Visiting https://nextdoor.com/, their map is divided again with the west side of 46th Ave., west to the Florida Turnpike and bounded on the north by Sunrise Blvd. and by Broward Blvd. on the South. Nextdoor agrees with the “Breezewept Park Estates” but according to Nextdoor, east of 46th Ave. to State Road 7 and bounded to the north by Sunrise and to the south by Broward Blvd., Nextdoor’s map label the community as “Westgate Lake Manor”!

When you auto fill the Plantation Park East zip code, 33317, you get three choices; Fort Lauderdale, Lauderhill and Plantation.


Community Name:

Plantation Park East
Breezewept Park Estates
Westgate Lake Manor

Which One?

33317 Zip Code:

Fort Lauderdale

If you get a Post Office Box at the Plantation Post Office on 5th Street in the City of Plantation, the Post Office Box will have a Zip Code of 33318 and a city of Fort Lauderdale!

Very Confusing

Note: Both the GIS Crime Map and Nextdoor.com divide the community the same.
