Riverland Park in Fort Lauderdale offers water fun and sports recreation. The park features a water playground or splash park for younger children as well as a lap pool which are open seasonally. Programming includes lessons, water aerobics and open swim. The almost 10 acre park includes a large Recreation Center which may be rented and reserved for a fee. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the walking/jogging trail, full court basketball and football/soccer field. Bring a picnic to enjoy and let the kids clamber on the playground equipment. Picnic areas and pavilions are available for shade.
The Community Garden at Riverland Park is a wonderful place to explore with the children. Let them see how banana, papaya, cucumbers and more are grown to give them an understanding of where their food comes from. If the kids are eager to get their hands dirty and get involved, call 954-828-5320 to claim your own plot in the garden! The garden is ready for the growing season starting in October.
