Hugh Taylor Park was a delightful nature retreat in the middle of Fort Lauderdale. It has flora and fauna native to this area and was well worth the walk. Delightful experience.

We did a Segway your of this park through Sunny Segway. This was an excellant way to see this natural park. Segways are the best way to get around

It used to be a place you could enter with a donation, but now you have to pay 2,00$ per person, which is not much if you think of all the work that has to be done to keep the site nice and clean, but we sent some people and they turned around instead of paying the 2,00$. They missed... More

My husband and I were staying at the hotel across the street and decided to take a walk through the park after breakfast. It was wonderful. You completely forget you're in the middle of a city! There were lots of trails and things to do and see. I'd go to Fort Lauderdale just for this park.

This is a GREAT park - whether you want to see the Intercoastal waterway, banyan trees, mangroves, ocean beach, or get some exercise on bikes/kayaks/segways, this is a clean, cheap place to spend some time. $2 per person walk-in, $6 per car with plenty of places to park. Just off A1A. Concession area available for snacks and drinks.

We went to canoe the lagoon as the rate is very reasonable for a family especially since we correctly guessed that the 3 year old wouldn't last long. Enjoyed the paddling but wish the rental location was where the canoes were located. We had no lunch packed and since there are no snacks available this was all we were able... More

For a small amount of money, the four of us took a stroll through wooded trails, climbed a couple of huge trees, and had a relaxing time. We also saw some amazing houses across the intracoastal waterway from the park. There are some crazy-rich people in Fort Lauderdale...

My family and I rented bikes and rode around the park. The pros: It was a nice relaxing break from the crowds. A good portion of the park is well shaded by the trees. My son found a turtle hidden away among the trees. The Cons: The paved road is pretty narrow and allow cars on it. Some cars go... More
