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.

Lots to do at this beautiful nature park! Biking, walking, beach, kayaking, pedal boats and more. Even an oceanfront casual style restaurant!

This is one of my favorite parks in the area. It offers canoe rentals on the inland portion and has intracoastal views on the west side. It also offers a historic old residence and a tunnel to Ft Lauderdale Beach.

If you like the sit by the waterway or go to the beach this is the place for you. Many shaded spots and barbecue pits to use. Nice trails that you can walk to the beach. Bring your bike and tour the park. Have fun.

Reachable by city beach bus, and across from nice (no condos) all beach. Explore serene, densely green intercoastal waterway by canoe. My 70yr old mom, loved the turtles. Lots more going on for the whole gang, I would go back to explore.
