Great park with ample parking and the cost is only $6. Excellent walking trails and views of the intercostal waterway and the million dollar homes. It is a park used by families at the weekend for picnics and barbeques. Access is available from the park via an underpass to the beach.

I love this park! The park is 2.25 miles around. I ride my bike there, jog, and you can sit by the inter coastal and picnic in the shade or sun and watch all the yachts go by. Very peaceful. A good peaceful getaway to relax! a playground for the kids. A fee to get in but so much worth... More

A rare slice of original natural beauty in Ft Lauderdale! It was great for a run on smooth roads or a jog on the wild-side through Seminole trails and old railroad rails to trails. It is one of the last tropical beach tropical hardwood hammocks! Kudos to Birch and his donation to the people and posterity :)

Well spaced,maintained facilities for a day at the park and/or beach. I always rent a bike for an hour and leisurely ride around the entire park...stopping to enjoy the waterway views. You will see people fishing, reading, just a good place to relax. Rent a canoe to enjoy the small pond. Trails have some interesting vegetation. I believe you can... More

You can take a little stroll around this park - but you walk on the road inside the park. Great for strolling, skating etc.

Picnic pavilions and BBQs are Ok. Amazing view of Ocean-liners sailing out of the port. Trails are not paved, overgrown, very dark and narrow. The only paved road has moderate traffic, not comfortable to walk. A lot of raccoons, they are really cute!

We arrived late on a Sunday morning, just in time to get one of the few remaining shady spots alongside the water. It was a perfect day of relaxing. We barbecued at the grills located by the picnic tables. The park staff were friendly. The restrooms were reasonably clean. `1

The trails are fantastic! We enjoyed walking through the woods and along the water. Butterflies, lizards, dragonflies, and gopher turtles are all on display to be enjoyed.
