I love this park. Not only can you have a beach day, but you can also hike through the woods just across the street. This park has miles and miles of trails for you to walk, bike, or run. They offer rentals for bikes and beach materials, and they have a private beach entrance. A must see if you want... More

Went on a Saturday looking for a kayaking spot. Easy access to the launch site at the lagoon. Parking is close by. I have a little 8 ft sit inside kayak.The waterway started off nicely but soon narrowed and seemed to be overgrown with sawgrass. Then it got very shallow and after struggling through about a foot of water depth... More

Small state park a short walk from the beach. Nice for a walk, picnic, or a short bike ride. Path along the intracoastal is nice. Also, many picnic tables in various locations to choose from. This is not a large nature paradise, but it is just big enough to provide an escape from the Mall culture across the street.

In a city that continue to grow it's great that this chunk of old Floridas sits undusturbed allowing folks today to see what was here before the high rise buildings and boutiques.

We had a couple hours to kill before our flight and spent the $6 entrance fee and drove and walked around the park. Bring a picnic lunch and use one of the many tables located next to the inland water way, along the road or in the picnic areas. Don't miss walking the nature trails and make your way to... More

Loved spending a morning strolling through the paths at this park. Such a great way to get a different view of Florida while on a "beach" vacation

This park is beside Fort Lauderdale beach and once you enter, you leave the city views behind until you get to Sunrise Bay side of the park. The speed limit is 25 MPH and a $4 or $6 entry fee. All modes of transportation, motor scooter, bike, skates, boats and kayak are for rent inside the park. There are many... More
