Deerfield beach:
Outdoor fun from pineapple farm to Tree Zoo

Originally incorporated in 1925, Deerfield Beach was once a sleepy agricultural community, coaxing pineapples and squash from its rich soil. Though beach resorts and restaurants may have sprouted up in place of farms, the local Historical Society works hard to keep a record of the past and the town arboretum—known as the Tree Zoo—remains a testament to the area’s diverse ecosystem.
