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.

Just a quick moment off the beach you are in the cool, quiet woods. It's a great place for a long walk or bike ride. They rent bikes at the park. Admittance fee is $2 per person. Plenty of parking here and cheaper than parking on the street to go to the beach. They have an underground tunnel you walk... More

this park provides a wonderful respite from the hectic big city on one side and Spring Break ocean front on the other side.

We walked from our hotel to the park on a beautiful sunny day. The park has a main paved loop (about 2 miles) which we walked around, as well as an unpaved nature trail that intersects the paved trail often so you can get on and off. The park was not too crowded on a Monday, but use a bit... More

This is a delightful state park, with someone for everyone--activities, including a big stretch of beach and an even bigger stretch along the Intracoastal for picknicing and boat watching. Bike and even segways cover the trails also long enough for serious walkers. Naturalized native flora and some fauna. This is a gem.

We rode bikes through here one morning during a recent visit to Fort Lauderdale. It's a great outing right in the middle of the city. We would recommend it for a nice walk, access to the beach, a picnic on the Intracoastal. There is a nature walk and hiking trails. Really worthwhile.

I used to go the Birch State Park many years ago, and was very pleased to see the variety of activities and the nice cafe in the park.

I have been to this park more than a dozen times, whether it was picnicking, enjoying sites of the magnificent homes located on the Intracoastal Waterway, taking a Segway Tour throughout the park, working in the garden center, or just a way to enjoy a beautiful day. It's a great place to hang out, pack up a lunch, and enjoy... More
