Nature - Park/Garden
1000 N.W. 38th St., Oakland Park , FL 33309
This 46.6-acre Designated Urban Wilderness Area is a magnificent example of cypress and mixed cypress forest. Cypress trees 250 years old and 100 feet tall are common in the park, which also includes a scenic lake. Relatively undisturbed buffer areas of thick wild coffee, ferns, dahoon holly, cabbage palm, oak, and red maple shield the park, which is part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail, from surrounding developed areas, making this a little oasis of nature just minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale and Atlantic Ocean beaches. A soda machine and ice are available at the park office.
