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.

We visited this park and there wasn’t much to do. We stopped at the uncovered playground and the equipment was too hot to play on. We drove through and didn’t see much except picnic areas. I couldn’t find a map online and wasn’t offered one...More

To see a big turtle in captivity travel to Flamingo Gardens in Davie, FL about 17 mins west of Birch State Park, that rescues local wildlife which can not be returned to nature and keeps them safe. Non-Profit. Amazing... More
To see a big turtle in captivity travel to Flamingo Gardens in Davie, FL about 17 mins west of Birch State Park, that rescues local wildlife which can not be returned to nature and keeps them safe. Non-Profit. Amazing grounds to walk around and see wildlife like Turtles and bears and bobcats. Their enclosed bird sanctuary is the best.
