Best $20 spent in Hollywood! Friendly rental staff and equipment and beautiful mangrove trails. Saw gigantic iguana in a tree, three species of herons and some buzzards.

An excellent park facility for the community. We had a kayak exploration (provider is reviewed separately) of the area. The park features an extensive open lake with many side channels through mangroves and other quiet natural areas that provide a relief from the surrounding developed land. We saw plenty of bird and aquatic wildlife. There is a boat ramp, canopied picnic area, and permanent restrooms as well. Access and parking were free.

Iguanas everywhere we looked here. Both the north and the south parks. Free the day we entered. Welcomed by green beauty immediately. Both parks have little free libraries. Loved the park!!!!

Last year we did not do the South Trail. Therefore we did it this year. total trail is 2,3 miles. Beside the different trees we did not see anything which was interesting. Take in account that most of the trail is unpaved.

So happy to host “northern” family during winter in Florida. The hour we spent kayaking on West Park Lake was great for everyone! The county park facility is in great shape, clean and well maintained. We saw iguanas, beautiful mangroves, pristine brackish waters with small fish and native birds. Location is so convenient to Fort Lauderdale or Miami. Rental price for kayak/canoe was Uber-reasonable. It does demand effort but with life jackets and healthy teenagers (14 y/o) it was a great experience.

Hadn't been here in years but came on a weekday afternoon. No charge to enter the park on weekdays. $15 to rent a kayak for an hour and go through the mangroves and across the lake and wander in and out. We saw several herons and other birds. They said some before us had seen manatees but we didn't see any. But, it was a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Highly recommend.

Went for the first time. Boarders great, location wonderful BUT
Nature center has everything in various stages of completion. The large aquarium and needs repair, the other tanks are fun of rocks that are curing with etc. with a few if any fish. It may takes year to get in in reply good shape! The boat only runs on Saturday, as groups use it during the week.

Summary is that the Nature Center is still a beautiful worth going to, but i wish they could push a faster button to get countless thing ready for new visitors! I asked if it was money and the gentleman said they have plenty of money!

Few dollars for entry per person. Multiple picnic areas, playgrounds, and kayaking rental dock. Definitely worth a visit.
