Ask any American of a certain age – say over 50 – and they can hum the signature tune of Green Acres, the sitcom starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor as a couple who move from New York to a ramshackle country farm. It was created and written by Jay Sommers and ran from September 15th 1965 to April 27th 1971. It also starred Arnold the pig, who belonged to the couple’s neighbors and whom they treated as a son.
Greenacres, Florida, is not the same as the place in the sitcom. That was based on Sommers’ 1950’s radio show Granby’s Green Acres which ran for 13 episodes.
So our Greenacres has no claim to fame as regards the comedy show, but it has a claim to fame in its own right as a small city rapidly expanding in popularity. At the outbreak of World War II the population was just 304. Fifty years later in 1990 that had jumped to 18,683, while today in 2017 it is over 40,000.
It also most certainly has plenty of green acres with 11 parks totalling over 93 acres and Okeeheelee Park next door which has 1,700 acres. The National Arbor Day Foundation named Greenacres a Tree City USA in 1992 following the city’s commitment to planting and maintaining trees in public spaces.
