In 1958, with a budget of $5, the General Development Corporation (GDC) purchased the River Park development and 40000acre along the North Fork of the St. Lucie River. In 1959, the GDC opened its first bridge over the St. Lucie River, allowing for direct automobile access to Port St. Lucie.By February 25, 1961 there were 250 homes in the new city. GDC requested the state legislature to incorporate 70mi, along with the River Park settlement, into the City of Port St. Lucie. River Park did not incorporate into the city at the request of its residents. Port St. Lucie became a city on April 27, 1961 with the passage of House Bill No. 953, proposed by State Representative Rupert Smith and approved by Florida Governor C. Farris Bryant.Take a look at our United States tour itinerary website to refine the details of your trip to Port Saint Lucie.
