This park is located on the southern side of the Port Everglades entrance accessible by car along A1A or by boat on the ICW. The beach is a nice expanse of sand stretching from shaded picnic area. On week days it's quiet and great for family picnics. If you come by boat (small boat to fit under low bridge) there... More

I love the serenity this park his to offer. I went on a weekday and there were only a few other people I shared the beach with. The downside was there was so much dried up seaweed covering the beach that my children couldn't even find a spot to build a sandcastle. It would be nice if that got cleaned... More

The beach has a nice pier and lots of free parking. The beach is not very wide but the water is clear and the sand is free of any rocks. There is a gentle surf. We saw some locals having a nice bonfire and signing on the beach. If you are here around 4:00pm you can watch the cruise ships... More

I had my ceremony at John Lloyd State Park and it was absolutely awesome! Carmelo and Bob are wonderful. Carmelo ensured a beach wheelchair was ready and waiting for my mom and worked with my coordinator to change my pavilion the afternoon before the service. Sooooo grateful. Bob was our ranger and he was super friendly and helpful. Mom was... More

This park is great for going to the beach. it has nice big Shad trees for getting out of the sun when you want. it has many Picnic tables for having Family and friends for lunch or dinner. and you can fish at the Jetty or on the beach if you like.

Water was wonderful. Maybe facilities were just overwhelmed by the Mother's Day crowd, but the bathrooms were disgusting (even at 10am), the vending machines sold out, and the dressing rooms had no doors. Still, what a beautiful beach.

Dania Beach Fl parking can result in a parking citation of $40.00 even though you paid for parking, and had plenty of time left. If the wind flips your ticket upside down, you will get a $40.00 parking citation when the Broward County parking ticket enforcement officer visits. It is windy at the beach, and while you are opening car... More

This is a great park for road biking although the road is only 2.5 miles. Cyclists come to train there and there is minimal traffic. The beach is very shallow and changes a lot in terms of sand build up from the tide, seaweed, or waves. The great part is that the beach is never crowded. It is also a... More

This is a great spot to get away from the crowds at Dania Beach. It seemed like everyone wanted to be on the other side of the pier! While the sand is not super soft, this beach is a great place to watch the boats come and go from FLL port and the airplanes depart from FLL airport.
