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.

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. :)

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.

We went in to check it out since we had time to kill before our flight home and since you really can't see it from the road, our curiosity led us there. We were very pleased with the park. There is a part where you...More

we spent some of our time just walking hand in hand in the rain. It was quiet and calm and a perfect place to talk, giggle and kiss. Loved it. Very romantic!

The park has a very nice trail and an amazing view of some lakes and houses. Its very pretty and i definitely recommend it for nature-lovers. When we went we didn't really see any animals but the view was still pretty perfect.

Yes, there are bike rentals at BG Coco Cafe. I can't post links here, but just search for their website, and they have pricing on there. You can also get a BCycle (Broward county bike sharing program) from across the street.
