This 11-acre gem is located to the south of Griffin Road, nestled in the I-75 entrance corridor. It is and will remain a passive green space that serves as a focal point for our Town’s rural nature in the midst of the booming development which surrounds us on all sides. Contrary to all other corners of the I-75/Griffin Road interchange, the Calusa Corners park is a beautiful green, open space offering passive outdoor recreation for the public to enjoy.
Welcome to Sunshine Ranches Equestrian Park! SREP is the place to school your horse, walk your dog or just meet friends and neighbors to enjoy the beauty of the afternoon sunlight in a meditative setting. Located just north of the intersection at Stirling and Volunteer Roads in Sunshine Ranches, the park provides a lushly-landscaped twenty acres dedicated to Southwest Ranches Residents and to humankind’s “other best friend!”
Trailside Park provides a Greenway connecting the County’s C-11 and Flamingo Road trails to the Southwest Ranches comprehensive trail system. Serving as a buffer for residents from the commercial activity, this small, passive, 4-acre space features a thriving native wetland and provides a vista of open space in an area which is densely populated on three sides.
This passive park was maintained as a wholesale nursery for over 15 years. The Town of Southwest Ranches purchased the property in 2004 for preservation of open space and for development of outdoor recreational amenities.
The 30-acre Frontier Trails parcel is an open space with natural enhancements made possible with a generous grant from the Florida Communities Trust and from Broward County’s Open Space program allowing the Town to go forward with plans for creating a conservation area and passive recreational space for all to enjoy. The amenities planned in this location include trails, wetlands with native plantings to foster a rookery for native birds, and preservation of an existing archeological site.
Welcome to the Rolling Oaks Passive Open Space Park! This lovely 46-acre open space was purchased by the Town in 2001. Upon the two large open sections, great, old ficus trees have been growing for decades.
Situated at the corner of Dykes and Griffin Roads, this lovely 26-acre property has been considered for many different types of outdoor public recreation and Town purposes. Past plans included a town center and administrative complex, a replicated Native American village, a dog training facility and park.
Since acquiring the Sanctuary property, the Town has completed multiple phases of natural area restoration and landscaping improvements such as removal of invasive exotic overgrowth and installation of a diverse palette of native trees and shrubs on the site.
Otherwise currently undeveloped, the site is designed to offer recreational improvements including passive open space play fields, an outdoor amphitheater, enhanced wetlands, historical and environmental education, equestrian amenities, trails, and a neighborhood park serving the Town through the Green Meadows area. The development of this facility will be phased as funding allows
We envision thriving public and private partnerships to ensure vibrant parks and trails throughout Southwest Ranches for preserving Southwest Ranches’ peace, tranquility, and beloved memories as our finest legacy for generations to come.
