Parrot Cove Homes for Sale
Where Parrots Nest and the Tropics Begin
Parrot Cove, a neighborhood in Lake Worth, is named for the flocks of green parrots nesting in our trees. Residents are an eclectic mixture with varied professional backgrounds and lifestyles who share an appreciation of old Florida. Neighborhood borders are Lucerne Avenue on the south, the golf course on the east, the south side of 13th Avenue on the north and the east side of Federal on the west. The neighborhood is almost entirely made up of single family homes, some dating from the heydays of the Florida land boom in the 1920s but most built in the next wave of Florida’s growth in the 1950s and 60s. The neighborhood is family oriented, with safe streets and no through traffic.
Activities include regular Parrot-In-The-Hood parties for neighbors which are held in our residents’ homes. The area also holds special events such as block parties and, in 2010, a private tour and party hosted by the Lake Worth Playhouse. Parrot Cove marches in the local parades and participates in events such as the July 4th raft race.
Every-other-year there is a Home and Garden Tour when residents’ open their homes to visitors. Successful home tours over the years helped raise money to improve our community including tree-give aways after hurricanes, the purchase of banners designating our neighborbood and donations to local charities.
