Some of the many amenities include two playgrounds, basketball courts, an equestrian corral, an airstrip for electric radio-controlled planes and glider pilots, and fishing docks, all surrounded by the original Imagination Farms Dairy. This Park is the site of a former landfill which obtained a clean bill of health in the 1990’s. The twin hills at the Park are one of the highest spots in Broward County. From the top, one can see Port Everglades and the downtown area of Fort Lauderdale to the east and the vast expanse of the Everglades to the west.
In addition, outdoor enthusiasts have been attracted to the park for its athletic challenges. The hills and fitness trail have become a training ground for many sporting activities.
