The A1A marathon runs through this park. It's a great park with paved trails. Along a waterway - beautiful trees.

For those of you who like to picnic, this is a fun place to do it. You can bring your car, walk or bike into the park. It also has a connection to Ft Lauderdale beach. On one side is the intracoastal and you can watch all of the boats go by.

I have been attending the Winter Solstice yearly event for a while and have never had the opportunity to come during the day. I was so happy to bring my boyfriend and simply relax by the water. Next time we are bringing the dogs! Great place to BBQ and picnic.

This is a great place to go for a little break from the crowds on A1A. Nice loop for a run or walk. Quiet and shaded. Worth the $2 entry fee!
