Aventura is a suburban city in northeastern Miami-Dade County, Florida. The city was named after the Spanish word for “adventure” because one of the developers of the original group of condominiums in the area said to his co-delelopers, “What an adventure this is going to be.” The name predates the well known mall (Aventura Mall) built near the condominium developments.
Aventura has been around since the early 1970s. The area was initially referred to as Turnberry. Aventura became an incorporated city in 1995 and the Aventura Police Department was formed in 1997
Aventura is home to the luxury resort Turnberry Isle, where the yacht Monkey Business was docked during the Gary Hart/Donna Rice incident, in which Hart was forced to end his 1988 bid for presidency.
In early 2001, Former President Bill Clinton delivered one of his first speeches after leaving the White House at Aventura-Turnberry Jewish Center.
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.
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 highrises, yachts and the Atlantic Ocean.
