MIRAMAR PINELAND

Open as of March 1, 2013 (although with some amenities still under development), Miramar Pineland is one of the most diverse sites in the Broward County Parks and Recreation Division: part regional park, part nature center, and part natural area. At approximately 157 acres, it is a unique combination of scrubby flatwoods to the north and restored wetlands and associated prairies to the south. Its slash pine forest, in the northern half, is one of the largest intake resources of its kind in the county.

Of the site’s original 97.62 acres, almost 70 were purchased from the Estate of Emil Morton in 1989, through the Environmentally Sensitive Lands Bond Issue acquisition program; the remaining 27.64 acres were donated. Additional acreage was acquired in 2001, using a combination of funds from the 2000 Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond program and grants from the Florida Communities Trust (FCT). The City of Miramar was a partner in the FCT project.

Since its purchase the land has had debris removed from it, and initial treatment and removal of exotic invasive plants has been completed, with the site now regularly monitored for exotics and treated again as needed.
