Central to the City
Hugh Taylor Birch is the city’s own Central Park, complete with gopher tortoises and boat access from the Intracoastal Waterway. It’s easy to see why Hugh Taylor Birch wanted to preserve his estate for future generations to enjoy — it’s an oasis perfect for relaxation and exercise. The park is a vibrant center for the community of Fort Lauderdale, and residents take pleasure in activities from inline skating to reading under the shade of palms and oaks. Visitors can access the beach via the pedestrian tunnel under A1A. Picnic areas overlook the channel; pavilions with water and electricity are available for rental. A group/youth campground is available to organized groups. The Terramar Visitor Center features displays regarding the area’s natural and cultural history.
