Location, location, location! What's remarkable about this beautiful park is that it's right next to Ft. Lauderdale's beautiful beach. There's beautiful wooded trails with lots of places to picnic and pavilions (available to rent) and it's just a hop, skip and a jump to the ocean. It has to be one of the best places for a family reunion, company... More

This is a very nice park run by the State. You have to pay a to enter but I think it was worth it. There are several access points to the beach and it was well maintained and clean.

Just one block from my rental accommodations, the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park provided a wonderful spot for walking along the waterway, enjoying the beautiful flowers and trees, and an occasional boat passing by. Late in the afternoon, there were not many people, and it seemed the busyness of A1A and other thoroughfares were miles away. I look forward to... More

It is a 2 mile circular route with little car traffic. Only downpoint- it costs $6 to enter by car. Nice place to picnic/grill with family.

Whether you are spending the whole day or you just have an hour two before sundown, it's definitely worth the visit... especially considering it's accessible by bus and the walk-in admission is just $2. You can walk or bike on the paved road, or go off road on the natural trails. It's nice to see a park in the city... More

I went camping with a group of scuba divers all of us over 50 just this month. We were in the riverside camp ground. The campground is passable but the camp host was missing in action and the bathrooms ran out of toilet paper. There were a group of Boy Scouts in the group area that were up at the... More

Went here late afternoon to check out the park. We were not disappointed at all. There are plenty of areas for parking. Easy access to the beach via the pedestrian or tunnel. There is a nice walking/biking trail. The trail is surrounded by wonderful big trees and plants. There are some birds, ducks and other small animals too. This is... More

This is a lovely state park with drive in entry for $6 per car, $2 for walk ins. Plenty of benches and quiet places to enjoy the partially riverfront location. A great tunnel access to the beach. There is an office to rent all sorts of equipment including bikes, canoes, stand up paddle boards, jet skis etc. We took leisurely... More

Depending on the weather, this park is wonderful for a picnick. If it's windy, go to the intracoastal side and watch the boats. If not, head for the beach, the park also has several shelters, playgrounds and fields in which to accommodate different sports, games and groups.
