Coral Springs, officially chartered July 10, 1963, is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States, approximately 20 mi (32.2 km) northwest of Fort Lauderdale. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city had a population of 121,096. It is part of the Miami Fort Lauderdale Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area, which was home to 5,564,635 people in 2010.

The city was master-planned and primarily developed by WCI Communities, then known as Coral Ridge Properties, a division of Westinghouse. The city's name is derived from the company's name, and was selected after several earlier proposals had been considered and rejected. Despite the name, there are no springs in the city; Florida's springs are found in the central and northern portions of the state.

During the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s the young city grew rapidly, adding over 35,000 residents each decade. Coral Springs has a distinctive atmosphere among South Florida cities, due in part to its stringent codes designed to maintain the city's aesthetic appeal. The city government's effective fiscal management has maintained high bond ratings, and the city has won accolades for its overall livability, its low crime rate, and its family-friendly orientation.
