Smack in the middle of the city is this 180-acre park, which offers a respite from city life with picnicking, camping, swimming and canoeing and a chance to tour the home of the generous man who donated his lovely estate to Florida.

We took a segway ride through Hugh Taylor Birch state Park which made it even more enjoyable. The massive trees and intricate paths to the huge iguanas was definitely a sight to see. This park should be on the list of must-see.

It is a nice park for walking, biking, picnicing. I especially liked the shady trails and the view of canal aling the way. Very family oriented.

We had 45 people for a party and had a great time. Plenty of room to cook, throw frisbie, and just run around like the kids we once were. lots and lots of acreage and hard to believe its across for the Fort Lauderdale beach and so secluded that you would not know you were down town. Many many wildlife... More

this is a beautiful park adjacent to the beach. I rode my bike down and paid my $2 to get in and take the 2 mile loop inside through lush foilage and then next to the intracoastal waterway. It has a underground beach access tunnel. you can rent chairs, bikes, kayaks etc here. Lovely picnic areas in park. No swimming... More

LOVE this park. We often visit on a weekend and drop a fishing line in the inter-coastal, read a book, pic-nic and just chill.... Great place to unwind. You can even bring your doggies. :)

It was a bit too big for us in the summer heat but fortunately an extremely nice gentleman in his "golf cart" came to our rescue. Unfortunately we didn't get to see much wildlife. I'm afraid the refreshments were rather disappointing however it was a pleasant morning and only cosy a dollar each. Also reachable by the water taxi.

There are lots of trees and nature by the beach!! The oxygen created by the trees next to the ocean is invigorating.

My wife is 6 months pregnant and was not able to walk the two miles in the intense heat. Thanks to Buddy, he gave us an incredible tour from the luxury of the 4 wheeler with shade canopy. He is extremely knowledgeable and loved to teach us about all the species of plants and animals. I have a background in... More

I love this park because it is so quiet and chock full of nature. We saw turtles walking and manatees swimming in the intracoastal. We rented Segways and did a one-hour tour of the park. Lots of fun.
