Virginia Gardens is a village in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the village had a population of 2,375 in 2010.
In 1947, Miami Springs (of which it was then a part) passed an ordinance outlawing horses from the city limits. In response, about 50 citizens decided to break away and form their own village.
The village is named for the Virginia home state of many of the wealthy transplants which made up the founding residents. At the time of incorporation, many of the residents owned large estates, some up to 5 acres (20,000 m2), suitable for horse ownership. Only a single 1-acre (4,000 m2) residential property remains within the village limits today; the bulk of residential property now consists of 0.2-acre (810 m2) lots typical of suburban developments.
