Weekend Farm Tours -. Third full weekend of the month, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The park's educational farm complex was developed to reflect the history of farm activities in Broward County and to educate the public about the farm animals native to this area. The complex also includes a reconstructed farmhouse that once belonged to the site's original owners. For all ages. $3/person. For more information, call the park office at 954-357-8870.
