Nice Park in the Middle of the City
Jul 2021
Not really much in the way of nature, but nice facilities. Well shaded with large, old oak trees. Dog friendly too.

Great park
Jul 2021
Lots of oak trees and nice breeze from the lake make this a very pleasant walking place. 2 mile walk around the lake. Water Park for the kids. Lots of shelters for parties. Nice RV park (though next to a railway line).  Well maintained.

I grew up going to parks; "TY" holds a special place in my heart above all the others! I now visit with my kid, and he loves it! He suggested we walk there today rather than the beach even! Nature, Tree climbing, fun for everyone including dogs, you can truly creat great child hood and adult hood (smile) memories at this park.... I'm excited for what we can do at the park in the future, as we slowly and safely open back up to our new normal post C19. God Speed and keep safe! (I'm also determined to get an RV and camp out in the back at TY like I see so many families doing... I'm getting the Man to drive the RV, and marry me, and the RV! In which ever order!! ;o)

Amazing Spot for Viewing Nature
Nov 2020
I had not been to this location in many years, so I was interested in returning. I was in the area, and admission was free on non-holiday weekdays so I stopped in. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of wildlife: the most I have ever seen at this location. In just over an hour I saw an abundance of birds (egrets, herons, ibis, wood storks, cormorants, ducks, moorhens, coots), squirrels, and lizards (anoles and iguanas). It is a nice hike around the massive lake, or just to relax under the shade of the abundant oak trees. There had recently been a tropical storm, so the lake had overflowed some areas of the park that had to be detoured around. There were unfortunately a few negatives. Upon arriving I noticed that a homeless person living in a car overflowing with junk had obstructed part of the parking lot with their vehicle and was begging for change with a large sign saying, "We may be homeless, but we are still Christian" Yet no park staff were removing this illegal panhandler. While hiking the trail up a hill, I came close to being run over by a group riding loud motorbikes on the trails and grass around the lake, despite motor vehicles being prohibited on the hiking trails. I observed an employee in a truck eventually stop them and told them more than once to leave, but were ignored and taunted. At one point the employee chased them with the truck, but I don't know why they didn't just call the police to arrest those punks. The third negative was that the shoreline all around the lake was completely littered with trash, yet I saw no employees making any effort to remove it. Despite the negatives, I will still return, and I hope the Broward County Parks & Rec makes changes based on this review.

A nice mix of developed and undeveloped features
Oct 2020 • Couples
Large urban parks like this are great. This has large areas of open & wooded lands, as well as a number of amenities for various ages and interests. Somewhat unexpectedly, it has a nice looking RV park with full hook ups. Our local relatives enjoy the jogging trail around the perimeter. I understand that there’s a fee to use the park on the weekend but on a Monday it was mostly empty. I fished around the lake and had one nibble but I attribute that to my lack of skill and the right fly rather than a lack of fish.

Great county park
Mar 2020 • Couples
What a great county park We Just camped here for four nights. This park has a lot to offer to everyone. Great trails for running and biking. Fishing, Tennis court, and a pool. They have a big pool and small water park for a small fee.
The rv sites are at the back of the park which was well kept. We have a 40’ Rv and tie our Jeep and had plenty of room.
We paid 40 a night which during this time of year down here was a good price.
If your needing quiet. This is not your park. The train tracks run right behind this park and the trains run all day and night. I was not really bothered by this but our neighbors where not to happy with this.

Excellent park with multiple amenities!
Jan 2020
This is an excellent park to attend with family and friends. It is a great place for children's birthday parties, etc. There is a swimming pool, a location for camping, and a water park. There are also many shady spots and it would be a great location for engagement photos.

T. Y. Park, THE most beautiful county park in South Florida
Jan 2020 • Couples
I LOVE T. Y. Park! The most beautiful county park in South Florida. Live oak trees all over the place; picnic tables; barbecues; a beautiful lake; clean bathrooms; campground (you have to reserve a year in advance) and let’s not forget Castaway Island. So relaxing to go for a walk with Fido, feed the birds, read a book or whatever you enjoy doing in a park!

Nice urban park with campground & picnic facilities.
Oct 2019
It's nice to find a county park in the middle of an urban area, very close to I-95 and the beaches. The RV park provides full hookups in large open sunny spaces, no privacy. The trees are small and provide little shade. There are large oaks and other trees in the day use part of the park. The bathhouse (with combo lock) was very clean and spacious. Nice laundry facilities too. Trains do run along the edge of the park, not an issue if you have a self-contained vehicle with A/C. There is a water park, playground, as well as large areas for picnics. The paved path around the lake/park is frequented by local walkers and joggers. Park is free on weekdays, but there is a day use fee ($1.50) on weekends.
