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.

Birch Park has always been a treasure of wilderness along otherwise developed Fort Lauderdale Beach. Now, with the concessions being run and enhanced by a private operator, it is even better! The park's east entrance (along A1A north of Sunrise Blvd - at the tunnel and traffic light) now is home to a quaint little bar/restaurant with good food and... More

This is a "jewel" of a part off Sunrise Blvd and A1A. It is great for picnics, jogging, in-line skating and just having a leisurely walk. It is also a great place to take you furry friend for a walk. Many nature trails with information as you walk. Also, Camp Live Oaks is a great place for the kids to... More

This park is mostly woods and paths but we especially enjoyed the path along the Intracoastal Waterway. There were occasional benches to sit and watch the boats of all sizes. The small playground would be fun for kids.

This park is a great place to visit if you are interested in birds and need a break from the beach. You can easily walk there from the hotels on the North Beach. It has great, not too long, hiking trails and is good for biking too. But please bring water...and bug spray!
