Great place for family picnics, bike trails (rentals available) canoeing (small lagoon could use a bit of maintenance near end of route), nature hikes. Although it can get busy, we have always found parking. One can picnic on the intracoastal and later visit the beach without having to move your car. Restrooms near beach a bit shabby and desperately needs... More

We spent a couple of hours here just walking around looking at the vegetation and wildlife that is so different from our own. Just a beautiful spot for a break in your day.

Took my almost 3 year old. The trails are great to walk through and there are picnic tables and a place to fish off the wall into the intercoastal waterway. You can rent kayaks but we didn't do that this visit. There's also access to Ft Lauderdale Beach. Great place to spend an entire day! Will definitely visit again!

I love nature preserves so when I saw this place was close to our hotel I jumped at the opportunity! It is easily accessible and only $6 to park for the day. They gave us a map at entry and a quick overview of the park. It is about a two mile loop around the whole park. We walked the... More

Take a half day off and visit Birch State Park and enjoy a casual lunch. Great for Families with Children for a three hour visit through the park, situated just off Ft Lauderdale Beach

We enjoyed biking the trail and crossed over to the beach but the wearher wasn't good for the beach so we didn't stay.

If you are feeling energetic the full walk is about 2 miles which gives you the opportunity to see some interesting wildlife but most importantly to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the site.Also has access to the beach.

My wife and I loved the 2-mile walk which is flat all the way so not a difficult journey. We also loved being able to rent bikes which we did after walking. However, I didn't like the rental company writing my credit card number down. I had no reason to distrust them but that is not good practice since I... More

Great spaces for picnics, walking and kayaking, a hidden gem with great parking and beach access. Great for families, couples, or just going on a walk or bike ride by yourself. very large.

Friendly helpful staff at the equipment rental concession. Segway tour was so much fun and safe. Adequate time was given for instruction. This is a great way to experience a Segway and nature.
