Our skate venue at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is suitable for skaters of all levels. It is a smooth 1.8 mile loop around the park with some nice areas of shade and great views of the Intracostal Waterway.
We'll meetup at 9:30 am at the north parking lot area of the park which is just off Sunrise Blvd and A1A in Ft. Lauderdale. Park in the parking area close to pavilion 3 and we'll start our skate at 9:45 am. All day parking is free for members of the Friends of Birch State Park, holders of a Florida State Park pass or the charge is $6.00 per vehicle, so car pooling is a great idea.
SKATE DETAILS: We'll begin by skating the perimeter loop around the park. You can skate at your own pace and do as many loops as you wish. After the skate we’ll regroup and find a local restaurant for brunch.
Remember to bring sunscreen, bug spray, and water for the skate itself. This a great skate for all levels (see the About Us page for a description of the levels) and the total distance for the skate will depend on how many of the 1.8 mile loops you choose to do.
