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.

Park and take a stroll through what Florida used to look like. Kayaking and canoeing available. We picked up sandwiches at the near by Publix supermarket and went here to have a peaceful lunch along the waterway. Entry was only $6.

Yes, there are bike rentals at BG Coco Cafe. I can't post links here, but just search for their website, and they have pricing on there. You can also get a BCycle (Broward county bike sharing program) from across the street.
