Hugh Taylor Birch State Park

This massive park was Hugh Taylor Birch’s donation to the state of Florida. Birch came to Florida in the latter part of the 19th Century and promptly fell in love with the area. He eventually purchased more than three miles of oceanfront property in the little town of Fort Lauderdale. More than a century later, Fort Lauderdale is now a busy metropolis, and Birch's land thrives as a wildlife preserve and botanical wonderland. A number of animal and plant species have found a safe home here. Visitors are free to hike or bike the designated trails, canoe around the lagoon, take a dip in the ocean and visit Birch's home. Excellent camping facilities can also be availed here.

Hollywood Beach

One of the most touristy locations in Hollywood, Hollywood Beach appeals to tourists and locals alike, offering a variety of fun activities in a tropical environment. If you're a fan of beach volleyball head out to the beach and mix in with the locals. The Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is probably one of the biggest attractions here and is a 4 kilometer-long (2.5 miles) promenade that really allows visitors to take in the magnificent views of the coast. Watersports activities such as fishing, surfboarding and canoeing are also extremely popular here

Anne Kolb Nature Center

The Anne Kolb Nature Center was named after a dedicated environmentalist from the region. Part of the 1500-acre (607.02-hectare) West Lake Park, one of the largest parks in Florida, you can find a variety of birds here, like the white ibis, osprey and peregrine falcon. Tour the mangrove wetlands by foot on raised boardwalks, by bike or by canoe. The nature center rents bicycles, while the park's marina rents canoes and runs guided trips. Visitors can also experience a 40-minute environmental boat tour.

Hollywood North Beach Park

This 55-acre (22.25-hectare) park is great for nature lovers, and contains lush vegetation, oak trees and boardwalks built over dunes. The Hollywood North Beach Park is also a haven for sea turtles, which often surface to the delight of visitors. Enjoy more than two miles of walking paths, picnic tables (some picnic areas are designed for large groups), a beach with lifeguards, and a 60-foot (18.28-meter) observation tower. Park amenities include rest rooms and snack shops.

West Lake Park

Located in Hollywood's northeastern coastal strip, West Lake Park offers something fun to do for people of all ages. Whether you're just in for a casual stroll in the woods or wish to play a game of basketball or tennis they've got it all. Due to its close proximity to the North Atlantic Ocean, watersport is by far the most preferred activity here with the park providing adequate facilities for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Home to a variety of flora and fauna that are native to the region, this is also a good place for some wildlife photography.
