I have been there many times for 5K races. As one person said a lot of shade for biking, running, or just having a picnic. The park does not allow loud music which is fine with me. The trees are very old and tall. Plenty of bathrooms.

Lots of big trees make really nice shade throughout the park. A nice lake with lots of activities like swimming, paddling, camping, fitness trails, etc. And lots of picnic areas. A really pretty park.

This park has something for everyone. Great bike paths with lots of shade. Our family dogs enjoy a splash and there is a water attraction for the kids. Special events for birthdays using the covered pavilions make it good for celebrations.

I thought this park might be a little cramped and outdated. But, wow!! It has a beautiful pool area for kids in the summer. It's clean. And the 2 mile jogging path is shaded in most parts and is dog friendly. I love the location. It's near all the great areas of south Florida - including the beaches, casinos, museums... More

I made reservations about a month before arriving and was able to secure a pull-through slot for our 5th wheel trailer. The site was a very level concrete pad. The hookups were at the very back of the pad, so you'd better have enough sewer hose to reach. The park entry MUST be made carefully, and since you have to... More

Just a few of my adult family members met (1 hour advanced notice/planning) for an outing to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The experience provided pleasant conversation in a very nice atmosphere for about 2 to 3 hours. We had a few snacks with beverage since there was no advanced preparation--other than the previous 1-1/2 hour phone contact.

this park has everything a family can enjoy. We spent the day with a family cookkout and then did the nature trail together. Boats are available to sail the lake and there is a small rental fee for that. We enjoyed terrific firework display on July 4th.I would recommend this for all to have a great weekend in hollywood, Florida

This is a luscious park! It's easy to overload the modern conveniences and just stand under the glorious trees and this that you were 100 years in the past. Everything from pet friendly walking trail, to waterpark, to family friendly picnic areas and everything in between. There's even an RV/camping park. I love to walk here after especially tense work... More
