C-14 Canal - Cypress Creek Greenway

PDF version of the above map

Land next to canalThe Cypress Creek Greenway provides an exciting and achievable opportunity for a multi-purpose trail linking Broward County's western conservation areas with the eastern beaches and communities in between. The greenway would originate south of Atlantic Boulevard at a trailhead adjacent to the proposed Conservation Levee Trail. pedestrian/bicycle overpass is proposed at this location to provide a crossing over the Sawgrass Expressway and the greenway to the east. Plans are already underway for improvements along the portion of the C-14 corridor between the Sawgrass Expressway and University Drive as the City of Tamarac has programmed funds for a linear park in this area.

East of University Drive, several spurs to the main trail would link the greenway with the adjoining communities of North Lauderdale and Coral Springs. The North East of University Drive, several spurs to the main trail would link the greenway with the adjoining communities of North Lauderdale and Coral Springs. The North Lauderdale Trail would run along a scenic path between two narrow canals adjacent to Southwest 83rd Avenue and terminate near Hampton Park. The Riverside Drive Canal Trail would extend north paralleling a canal adjacent to Northwest 80th Terrace. This multi-use trail would travel through shaded residential neighborhoods ending at Lyons Park north of Sample Road in Coral Springs.

East of State Road 7, the Fern Forest Nature Center would serve as a prime destination for trail users. The nature trails within Fern Forest offer a respite from the busy urbanized area and a glimpse of native Florida. West of Lyons Road, right-of-way limitations necessitate that the C-14 Canal trail utilize wide sidewalks paralleling Atlantic Boulevard and neighborhood streets to reach the final destination of Pompano Beach. The Cypress Creek Canal provides an opportunity for another spur to the greenway. The trail begins at Atlantic Boulevard just east of the Florida Turnpike. From there, it follow the Cypress Creek Canal as it meanders to the southeast through the scenic Palm-Aire golf course community. Across Powerline Road, the Cypress Creek Canal trail continues through the Cypress Bend community to wide sidewalks paralleling McNab Road and ending at Andrews Avenue just north of Tri-Rail station. East of Andrews Avenue, the trail would resume along Cypress Creek, terminating just east of I-95. The City of Pompano Beach has proposed a park near Cypress Creek which would serve as a trailhead. Although right-of-way limitations preclude extension of the multi-purpose path along Cypress Creek to the east, a water trail could provide a connection to the Intracoastal Waterway.
