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.

I enjoyed being on the edge of the intercoastal and watching the massive boats go by. We caught a glimpse of a few manatees and was awestruck by the magnificent mansions on the other side of the water.
Nice to have a small slice of natural habitat left in this city. Great place for picnics or running. 2 mile loop that you can do forward, backward, on trail off trail so vary it up and you can get a long run in. Very...More
Even though we have stayed beside this park, we had never thought to use it. This time we walked throughout it and ended up with a cold drink in their restaurant area.Very well maintained area and lots of diversity from water to thick brush. Could...More
Wonderful place to hang out if you like being around dogs. Grab a golf cart shuttle and let the park ranger will give you a guided tour. $2 gets you in, but not required for entry to the restaurant. Beer and wine available for purchase...More
This park was right across the road from our hotel. We spent part of the afternoon walking the trails and seeing the variety of trees and plants. Although we did not this this, kayaks are available for rent here.
Spent a really nice Saturday morning exploring this state park! I liked that there was plenty of parking and the maps clearly outlined the trails. I also saw a ton of wildlife. The key is to go by yourself and not make noise, then you...More

Hi, yes I would say this park a good place. It cost to come by car, but not for just walking. The rearest free parking is. on the other side of the brigde, on the right side. Else, for just relaxing out ou the sun, why not visit Gallerian Mall. Its free parking, and a lot of places to sit on in the first floor and spend some hours.
Beach biking or biking at state parks near Pompano Beach (2 Replies)
Besides the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Ft. Lauderdale, can anyone recommend any other parks or scenic areas near Pompano with paved paths? Looks like there is no biking (beach cruiser type) allowed on any of the beaches. We'll need some place that rents the bikes right on the premises. Thanks in advance.

Rentals are tough to come by. The bike lane along A1A is not as daunting as you might think, if you can find an easy way to rent. The ride from Pompano Beach to Boca Raton is quite pleasant. Shark Valley, in the Everglades offers an easy rental opportunity, but is some distance away.
Suggestion for beach or things to do in Fort Lauderdale (3 Replies)
Hi, we will be flying in Fort Lauderdale with an 11-year-old boy. We will be staying north of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, by E. Sunrise Blvd. Looks like Aruba Beach Cafe will be our dinner place, should we stay in that session of the beach? We will have a rental car, so we don't mind driving a bit further if it has better beach? Also, please recommend things to do with an 11-year-old: Is Sawgrass Recreation Park airboat ride a good option? (we never ride on an airboard before) ...More

Las Olas Beach (7 Replies)
Hello I am planning on spending a few hours on Las Olas Beach on Christmas Eve . I am on a back to back cruise on the Eurodam. What is the best way to get to Las Olas beach from Port Everglades, uber or sun trolley? Or is it walkable? Where can you hire sunbeds and brolly from? Any recommendations for a restaurant for lunch on the beach? I don't eat meat but eat fish and shellfish or would I be better going to the beach at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, the sunbed and brolly...More

No idea what a “brolly” is, and I’m honestly not sure where Las Olas Beach is, I doubt locals refer to it as such. From the Port you’ll need a taxi or an Uber/Lyft.
