Shocking how beautiful this place is, in the middle of Broward. Sad too, considering how little is left.

Very nice trail! Lots of shade and concrete to walk on. Would’ve liked it to be a little but more “natural” and maybe a little longer

Was an nice short trail nothing crazy

I didn’t have much time to go off on a lot of the side trails and some were too muddy to even step into. Not a big fan of the huge telephone poles throughout either. Other than that it was a nice trail with some cool wildlife. Lots of bees, butterflies, different kinds of birds, turtles, fish. A mixture of sun and shade.

We did the pine trail and a new trail that was towards the front. We went off trail for part of it too! So fun and pretty. It was wet so mosquitoes were getting to us. Partly in the sun, partly in the shade. Overall calming and some lovely fresh air smells along the way.

Wow. Ok. I’ve been visiting family in the very near vicinity of this magical place for 25 years and never knew it existed. I’m a hiker from Philly, so this tropical flora/fauna feels wholly different than the forests of the mid-Atlantic and northeast. There’s a raised wooden path that winds through the dense hammock, about a foot above the water. There is also a longer, ground level trail but it was extremely muddy due to recent rains, but I’ll return to explore more.

The scenery is somewhat diverse along the paved trail. Although it is quick to complete, it felt like a walking diorama. I thought it was a good representation of our areas natural habitats. The perimeter road was most enjoyable, lots of small wildlife to see.

Straight stretch of concrete, dog poop all along and on the walkway. Homeless people sleeping off to the side. Littler-filled creek. No shade or water but there are benches. Ps (to follow off the previous post): Dogs are allowed on the greenway but not in the Fern Forest Park where you park your car.

Lovely boardwalk and nature center but close proximity to the Turnpike-traffic noise can be heard loud and clear. Boardwalk is well shaded so if the noise doesn’t bother you it’s a lovey place to visit.

I picked this trail so I could bring my dog with me, but this place IS NOT dog friendly. There is a huge sign at the entrance saying “no pets allowed”

Kid friendly and stroller friendly walk. Not much wildlife but it has shaded areas which is great for hot days.

Truly very easy flat walk. Very pretty and cool tree life.

Nice walk, one trail requires boots as it's very wet but it's clearly marked and let's you know. shoe cleaning available when leaving the trail too. bring bug spray! there are lots of mosquitoes. there is a community can of OFF! which I really appreciate. very relaxed, light traffic on a Sunday morning

Beautiful and worth a stop if you are in the area. Interpretive boardwalk and more trails throughout.

This is a hidden gem. There is a boardwalk that is wheelchair or stroller accessible, saw a lot of families walking it this morning. There are also three nature trails in the same area. One of them, Maple Walk trail was closed for maintenance. I also hiked the prairie perimeter which is nice, but right next to the turnpike so skip that if you don’t want to hear traffic. Didn’t see many animals other than birds and butterflies. Fauna on this place is very diverse.

I hiked this trail with my wife and baby last October 2017 and we really enjoyed it. The entire trail is paved which allowed us to take our one-year-old in her stroller. There are plenty of iguanas and birds on the trail. The trail ends in Tephord Park, in Tamarac, which has many burrowing owls. Tephord park also offers other amenities, such as a dog park and a kids park. Also, if you do this trail on a Sunday, you will also pass by the farmer's market. Note that the trail offers little shade, so you'll want to wear a hat, shades, and sunscreen.

Super short just a swamp. The walkway is nice and it is pretty deserted most of the time. We live about a mile away.

nice and peaceful trail... just a quick easy trail to get away from the busy traffic just outside. .. shaded and cemented path ways. lots of butterflies.

nothing too fantastic if you really want to see much in way of wildlife. close to traffic so there's a distraction, plus there's a bus stop along the front trail and you can see homes through the trees. however, being a short, paved trail and having a couple nice resting spots, it's great for preschool kids.
