Shh, don't let the secret out, but there is a State park with wonderful facilities and historic natural beauty located right next to Ft. Lauderdale beach. Large pavilions and picnic and barbeque facilities and beach access through a tunnel.

This is a very beautiful park for excersizing or picnicking. It is also close to the beach so a great opportity to visit the park and beach at one visit.

Shout out to Ranger Marc for the cool guided tour he gave us! We paid $6 to park and got a 2 hour tour, not a bad way to spend a day.

I love to roller blade here but you can do so much mote too. Picnic, event venue, kayak or stand up paddle just to name a few. And it is next to the beach!

I have been here several times to walk my dog with my BF. Daisy dog loves going off leash on the trails. (Not Allowed) Since the state government has no money for parks there are few rangers so don't worry about being caught without a leash unless some big dog rips your little dog to bits. Which has almost happened... More

It cost me $4 to drive in, alone. There are some picnic pavilions at places and picnic tables scattered around the park. Short walking trails cut through the dense brush. One side of the park borders the waterway, with residential dwellings along the opposite shore. Boats of many sizes ply the waterway. It's somewhat scenic. There's not much to see... More

Beautiful park with plenty of hiking, kayaking, beach access (jet skis when weather ok), and picnicking. Weather was VERY hot while we were there, but we spent a lovely day with nature nonetheless.

This park is near all the fancy resorts on the beach. We stopped in on a whim to kill some time and ended up getting a custom tour around the park from a volunteer. Great history and there is even beach access from the park. Saw a gopher tortoise, iguanas, other reptiles. Wish we had our bikes with us, looked... More
