Return to main Community Profiles index

With its shady, tree-lined streets nestled adjacent to the cities of Melbourne and West Melbourne, Melbourne Village is a haven from the bustle of city life. Its 671 residents enjoy the convenience of their proximity to the shopping and restaurants of New Haven Avenue and easy access to major highways, whilst living a relaxed lifestyle in relative seclusion.

Incorporated in 1957, residents are encouraged to actively participate in their community. Each member-family can vote in municipal decision-making. The town's location provides for easy access to neighboring cities' parks and recreational facilities, as well as outdoor activities such as golfing, surfing, boating, and fishing to name a few.

Bordering Melbourne Village to the east is Erna Nixon Hammock Park. This 53-acre community park is a natural Florida hammock and nature preserve featuring 3,000 feet of elevated boardwalk winding through three different ecosystems where native plant species and small animals can be viewed. A small pavilion with picnic tables and restrooms adjoins the nature center which houses educational exhibits, and the park is a popular site for outdoor festivals such as the annual Crackerfest.

Members of Melbourne Village's demographic group typically are well educated and live in two-income households. Most are homeowners in suburban neighborhoods. Typically they enjoy outdoor activities, shopping, and family outings.
