This approximately 110-acre multipurpose facility is the first Broward County regional park to be acquired and developed through the Broward County Commission’s 2000 Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond Program, a historic measure that passed with 74 percent voter approval. The park is now the largest in the long-underserved central Broward County area and is designed to serve seven of the county’s 31 municipalities: along with Lauderhill, Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale Lakes, Oakland Park, Plantation, Sunrise, and Wilton Manors.
