This park is very near my home, so I usually visit it 1-3 times per week. This park really has a feel of old beach scrub and hammock Florida (particularly the hiking trails that lead off from the parking lots and roads). If you are a cyclist or skater, this park is particularly good: there is a paved loop road beginning at the entrance gate, looping north with high trees on both sides, then a slight downhill curve to take you south along the intracoastal waterfront side of the park, then back to the gatehouse. The loop is exactly 2 miles around. Cars drive slowly in the park and the surface is smoothly paved, so it is a desirable condition for safe skating -- certainly much safer than being outside the park on the crowded city streets and roads with fast, distracted drivers. There are also picnic tables throughout the park (with outdoor barbeque grills scattered about). Another plus is that the park is right across the street from the beach (the Fort Lauderdale North Beach area), so there is much parking in the park (and very little parking along A1A outside the park).
TIP: The best deal, if you plan to visit more than 10 times in year, is buy an annual pass. If you buy it at the beginning of a month, it is actually good for 13 months as expiration dates are simply an entire month (example: Buy on August 1, 2014 and it will be valid through August 31, 2015).
