I have been going to this State Park for over thirty years. It is a very clean and well kept beach. I feel safe and secure here. The bathrooms are clean and well kept as are the picnic tables and the grilling areas. This is a great place for families with small children.

I have wanted to visit many times, but it had another name. The new name honors the civil rights leaders who brought a "coloured beach" to segregationist South Florida in the 1940's and beyond. It has a lovely, unspoilt beach with charcoal barbecues and dining areas. It has a very nice restaurant with $1.99 sixteen ounce draft. THIS IS NOT... More

I was really disappointed with the beach at this park. The beach itself was very narrow and appears to have been eroded significantly as there was a steep ledge with a drop-off down to the rest of the beach. Worst of all the beach was covered with garbage and pieces of broken glass that made us feel unsafe to even... More

We went there when there was many functions and it was hard to find a parking spot. Also the lady who was taking the cover charge at the entrance was not very happy and quite abrupt.

This place is worth the visit, whether planning, attending or crashing an event, or simply looking for a park space with quick and easy ocean access. If you are looking to go to Fort Lauderdale Beach, you have the traffic, parking, and fees associated. And then you have to show up early enough to get a space on the beach.... More

The reason we went to this park was to see the RCCL Oasis of the Seas cruise ship sail from Port Everglades. This was the place to be, it wasn't crowded, and the beach was very nice. The water was a bit warm, and the sand has a lot of shells which is great for the kids, but not for... More

On Sat 8/20 we planned a family outing to "John U. Lloyd Beach" which we had not visited in 25 years. We had fond memories of bringing our young children here to dig in the sand, play in the water and beach comb for shells: jewel boxes, scotch bonnets, scallops, etc. At the time, it was the best beach in...

This is one of the best beaches in South Florida. They have pavilions, modern bathroom facilities, a boat ramp, a concession with food and kayak/canoe/etc. rentals. On the north end, the park features a pier that is adjacent to the entrance for cruise ships and container ships into the port of Ft. Lauderdale; this affords some fantastic views of these... More
