Sandy Ridge was created on a 38-acre tract of land that was initially to be developed with 195 zero-lot homes. The site was bought by the City of Coral Springs in 1996 using funds from the 7.5 million dollar environmental bond issue approved by voters in 1994, as well as a grant from the Florida Communities Trust.

The terms of the referendum and the grant proposal make Sandy Ridge a nature preserve in perpetuity.
