Hugh Taylor Birch State Park

Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is a charming park in Fort Lauderdale in Florida, the embodiment of anxious dream and hard work of one person. Birch became the embodiment of love for nature and humanity, but the history of the park was not always so bright.

In 1893, a lawyer from Chicago decided to create something really meaningful and valuable, and, after moving to Florida, began building a secluded house on a large plot

The wonderful Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is located at the junction of the Atlantic and the Canal Coast. Through the park, lovers of picturesque landscapes can go on an unforgettable journey through the nooks of tropical thickets. All tourists are waiting for explanatory signs with information about a particular place, as well as about the creatures that live there.

The park is located near one of the most famous beaches — Fort Lauderdale Beach. All visitors to the park can go to the beach through a special tunnel in the interval from 9 to 17 days.

In the park, for example, you can find various butterflies, fluffy raccoons and turtles of rare breeds, as well as a huge number of birds. Opossums and gophers live here, and herons are found in the mangroves located on the western side of the park. For the greatest comfort, tourists are offered to rent bicycles.

But not only active tourists will find attractive conditions for walking in the park. In the shaded corners, special places are organized for lovers of picnics, barbecue, as well as equipped entertainment areas for children of different ages.

In each department for the organization of barbecue there is electricity and drinking water, and the capacity of one gazebo is about 75 people. You can rent a pavilion by the hour or daily.

Hugh Taylor Birch Park history

In 1893, a lawyer from Chicago decided to create something really very significant and valuable, and, having moved to Florida, began construction of a secluded house on a large plot.

This site was located on a picturesque ocean, which Birch really wanted to save for people. That is why, at the age of 90, he bequeathed this place for its further exploitation as a green zone for all comers. In 1949, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, located near Miami, opened and became accessible to people.

Currently, Taylor's house, built in the exquisite art deco style of the best Mediterranean traditions, boasts various exhibits and interesting layouts. All of them tell not only about the interesting life of the founder of this place, but also about the story of Fort Lauderdale. Not without historical reference regarding the park itself.

Fans of relaxation are actively waiting for exciting events! Here you can rent a kayak or canoe, camping and fishing equipment, roller skate or swim in the ocean. But fishing lovers should keep in mind that it is impossible to engage in such activities in lakes and ponds located on the shore. A coastline is available for this.

Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is an amazing place that can captivate not only people with families and children, but also youth. For student groups and other young tourists there is the opportunity to organize youth camping. One camp can accommodate up to 40 people! Young people will spend the night in tents. Outdoor showers and a toilet are also available.

Another camp for youth involves the placement of non-profit groups. It accommodates 70 people, who during their stay will live in comfortable cabins with air conditioning and toilets. A full kitchen will work for this group.

There is a public park every day, and tourists can visit it on weekends as well as on major holidays.

There is a beautiful place for good people, where you can have a great day off with family or friends, have a barbecue, take a walk and just relax.
