Flamingo Road GreenwayThe Flamingo Road and Hiatus Road Greenways provide a unique opportunity in urban Broward County for development of a rural and semi-rural multipurpose trail serving equestrians, bicyclists and hikers. These Greenways would also link Broward's western communities with existing and proposed parks and natural areas. The Greenway begins at the Sawgrass Expressway in Sunrise and travels south past Welleby Park which would serve as a trailhead. As the trail enters the City of Plantation, it assumes a rural character passing though the Plantation Acres community and following an existing equestrian path located adjacent to the C-42 Canal.

At SR 84, the trail turns north along the route of the proposed New River-SR-84 Greenway to Flamingo Road. Turning south on Flamingo, the trail passes through Davie's western rural areas. The scenic Long Pine Key natural area, situated to the west of Flamingo Road north of Griffin Road, is the planned location of a $12 million nature center funded through Broward County's 2000 Safe Parks and Land Preservation Bond program. The Long Key Nature Center will serve as an outstanding destination for trail users. Flamingo Gardens, located east of Flamingo Road near Long Key, provides another attraction in this area with its botanical gardens and tropical birds display.

Other existing and planned local greenways systems link with the proposed New River-SR-84 Trail in this area. The Town of Davie's extensive trail system intersects with the trail north of Griffin Road along Orange Drive and also at the Long Key Pine natural area. The Town of Southwest Ranches planned trail system will link with the trail to the west on Griffin Road.

South of Taft Street in Pembroke Pines, Broward County's CB Smith Park offers a wide variety of facilities to trail users including a water park, trails, picnic and play areas. The trail then passes through City of Miramar ending at a proposed trailhead adjacent to the Snake Creek Canal. Opportunities exist at this location for future connection to Miami-Dade greenways.
