West Lake Park...

Paddling at Hollywood, FL

Located between Hollywood and Dania Beach, FL, this large urban park includes about 3 miles of mangrove preserve adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway. We learned about paddling at West Lake Park from our friends at and visited the boat ramp and launch at the concession. A variety of paddle craft rentals are available. (Map and photos below.)
