Make sure to stop by Hugh Taylor Birch State Park if you find yourself in Fort Lauderdale. It has been considered the city's own Central Park since Hugh Taylor Birch preserved it for future generations to come. Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is the perfect destination for residents to enjoy leisure activities such as rollerblading, jogging, or reading under a palm tree. They even have access to the beach through the pedestrian's tunnel under A1A. The state park also contains boat access points from the intracoastal waterway so that one can navigate through the waters as they observe the various wildlife that it has to offer.
