We parked our car here before we could check in to our condo and on our way back to airport. Safe area with bags in car and we could hang on beach for no fee and have lunch in one of the many nearby restaurants. Very open, clean.

I love Fort Lauderdale because you can walk along the street; however, the people and the crowds have changed over the years. I enjoyed jogging and walking along the strip every morning. The beach park strip is over 4 km long. Many homeless people are sitting on the cement walls asking for money; this is unpleasant

Closed for the week end due to corona virus, Broward County's front porch is now open. It's an expansive shoreline. It stretches from Ft Lauderdale South Beach Park all the way to NE18th St. Parts of the beach have certain personality traits. Ft Lauderdale Beach Park (which I named this experience) is popular because of its many picnic tables and outdoor grills that draw lots of families. It also has a basketball court, playground, &volleyball nets. Me, its where I set and watch the World go by (people watching at its very best).

There is not much here except the Saturday Farmer's market which is small but worth a visit. Stay away from the adjoining parking lots that charge $20 / hr. Instead, there is a large City lot a couple of blocks south at $4 / hr.

My husband and I went to the beach here today after scoping out several other spots. We both have limited mobility and very low energy, so we were pretty picky about where we wanted to set up our beach towels. We found a spot right by the bathrooms, just off the parking lot towards the south end of the park. It worked out great for us! We were close to the restrooms, which also had a drinking fountain and a wash station to get the sand off yourself. Parking is right there, although we didn’t use it since we took an Uber. The beach was clean and not at all crowded during the afternoon on a weekday in February. There are also tons of picnic tables, some in the shade. Having all these amenities in one location was wonderful.

The only way this area could be improved for people with disabilities is to have beach wheelchair, lounge chair, and umbrella rentals accessible in this location. I’ve heard that beach wheelchairs are available a little further north at the Sebastian St. beach, but I couldn’t find restrooms there that were easily accessible. But if you’re able to walk on the sand by yourself, this is an ideal location to enjoy the sun and sand!

Generally a clean beach, except when Spring Breakers are in town and dump their trash on the sand, as is happening now. Still, this beach area is well maintained. Lifeguard stands. Basketball court. Restaurants across the street. Walkers and joggers on the sidewalk bordering the beach. Meter parking available.

Just at the beginning of the terrific Ft. Lauderdale beach you'll find this park with plenty of picnic tables for guests. Many trees around can provide free shade. There's a praking lot in vicinity and a basketball court on spot.
Very nice place to spend few hours relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends.

I was here in May 2018. This year I came in July and at the beginning of my stay there was a lot of seaweed. It is something I have never seen in Florida since I have been coming here. The seaweed was thick and smelled really bad; I didn’t go to the beach for the first three days of my vacation. The fourth day of my vacation all the seaweed was gone, the beach was clear and there was no more smell. The Beach Park has city bikes to rent for a fee, basketball courts, swings for all ages, and bench parks. The Park is on the Ocean Front and is open until 2am. It is a very nice place to come during the day or night.

Beach directly across street from hotel. Very clean and well patrolled by the lifeguards. The beach area is owned by the City so the chairs and umbrellas there are for rent. Always be sure to negoatiate a deal.
