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. A marina at the park has kayak, canoe, and paddleboard rentals and tours, or launch your own vessel from the public boat ramp. No motorized boats are allowed, with three paddling trails marked out through the mangrove. We learned about paddling at West Lake Park from our friends at FloridaRambler.com and visited the launch and concession. We present this information for those who are interested. (Detailed map and photos below.)
